The Weekend Come and enjoy a relaxing peaceful weekend in the beautiful setting of Madhyamaka KMC with teachings, meditations and the
empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa. Wisdom dispels the hesitation and doubt that keep us stuck in unhealthy habits and behaviors. Developing our own
wisdom is one of the most kind things we can do for ourselves and others. Je Tsongkhapa is a manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas, and by
receiving Je Tsongkhapa’s blessings we can awaken our own inner wisdom.
