Lamrim Retreat Month - July 2017

July Saturdays and Sundays (except July 1th, 2nd & 9th)

The July 2017 Lam Rim Retreat Program was prepared by Ven. Zawa Tulku Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of the Tsongkhapa Meditation Center in Sainte-Sophie Quebec as a very practical and simple approach for those who wish to participate to our Lamrim Retreat Month. This retreat will help us contemplate deeper each point of the Lamrim teachings we received over the year at the Center, so we can gradually actualize and practice these teachings in our daily life, develop virtue, advance on the spiritual path, and help others.
