Event Details

Join us for a full weekend of meditation instruction and practice with our dear friend and meditation expert Brendan Kennedy!

Brendan’s teachings are suited to those who have cultivated a daily meditation practice and are looking to deepen their experiential understanding of the practice. Through practicing together and sharing about our practice in an open forum, Brendan guides us to look at and transcend our habitual blocks to awareness and clarity and to give up preoccupation and distraction from who we truly are. This approach leads each person toward freedom from the trappings of ego.

Brendan has been practicing Tibetan Buddhism for over 30 years. His main teachers are His Holiness The Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche, Sokste Rinpoche, and Lama Surya Das. Drawing on his deep study of Ramana Maharishi and Nisagardatta Maharaji, Brendan illuminates the complementary similarities between Dzogchen and Advaita Vedanta in his teachings. Brendan offers a few intensive retreats each year but primarily focuses on synthesizing theory and practice at his desert hermitage in California.
