Tantric Practices for the Apocalypse: An In-Person, Day-Long Retreat with Lama Rod Owens

Explore the tantric deities of the Medicine Buddha, Tara, and Amitabha along with Mahamudra while engaging with a variety of rich practices and lively discussion with Lama Rod.

Saturday, March 4, 2023, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM (UTC-04:00)
Created by: Bhumisparsha


Join Lama Rod Owens and the Bhumisparsha community for an immersive day-long, in-person retreat in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, March 4th from 10 am to 5 pm.

Retreat Description: We are living through an apocalypse struggling to learn lessons through a pervasive pandemic, economic instability, political unrest, climate change, and various forms of systematic violence.

As a result, both our individual and collective grief and trauma seems overwhelming. Tantra is a system of profound practices engaging us directly with the phenomenal and its very essence of liberation. Tantric practices are necessary to support us as we move through this challenging period. Join Lama Rod in this one day retreat as we engage in contemporary tantric practice that incorporates not just profound and accessible practices, but also linking these practices with current justice movements.

Together we will be exploring the tantric deities like Medicine Buddha, Tara, and Amitabha along with Mahamudra, love and compassion practices, earth-based practices, dialogues, discussions, and laughter while being inspired by teachings from Lama Rod’s book Love and Rage as well as his upcoming book, New Saints.
