Detox Your Mind: A Buddhist Fasting & Purifying Weekend

This annual fasting and purification retreat, performed in conjunction with a practice of the Buddha of Compassion, is a powerful way to purify negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and to pacify strong delusions such as hatred and attachment. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and bodhichitta. You can choose to participate in one or both days:  the first day of this retreat is a partial fast (eating only lunch), and the second day is either a partial or complete fast.

Retreat sessions: 6:30am (precepts)*, 8:30am, 11:00am, 2:30pm

*To participate in this retreat, you must come to the 6:30 am session to receive Mahayana Precepts for each day you attend.

Cost: Free.  You may purchase a light lunch for $7 at our World Peace Cafe if you wish.
