A Note about Dana
Dana means generosity.
Teachers offer their knowledge and experience freely. When making a donation offering to a teacher, know that your commitment to the practice and teachings are the greatest gift. Yet, monetary gesture is also appreciated. Balance what you can afford with the value of the experience and then trust your heart.

Many of us had the wonderful opportunity to practice with Brendan Kennedy in recent years. Join us as he returns again in June.
Experience this rare opportunity to meditate and engage in discussion with an unassuming master meditation teacher in an intimate environment!
Brendan teaches about the importance of Freedom and how it's connected to our happiness. Each year he introduces different practices to help us experience more Freedom. This involves discovering and Being Who We Really Are.
All are welcome, whether you attended in the past or not but you must reserve a spot.
Brendan Kennedy is a longstanding and deep practitioner of the Dharma who has trained and practiced with many of the great masters in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and is a personal student of H.H. the Dalai Lama.
He uses language that is fresh, clear and coming directly from his own experience to communicate the essence of the Dzogchen tradition. His main teachers are: H.H. Dalai Lama, Khyentse Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche, Sokste Rinpoche and Lama Surya Das. He helped Lama Surya Das for many years in teachings and in intensive retreats. He also has a close connection with Ramana Maharishi and Nisagardatta Maharaji.
Brendan has the ability to reveal the complementary similarities between Dzogchen and Avaita Vedanta experientially. He gives a few intensive retreats a year, but mostly likes to practice at his desert hermitage.
