A Half-Day of Silence Retreat with Gen Rigpa SAT 05-11

May 11 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


A Half Day of Silence Retreat with American Buddhist teacher Gen Rigpa

Saturday, May 11, 2024    9am-1pm 


This retreat is for you if you wish to:

  • Unplug and quiet your mind
  • Detox from technology for a day
  • Develop positive, good intentions
  • Learn the basics of meditation
  • Enjoy practicing contentment

Life can be hectic and overwhelming; it’s easy to be “on” all the time without ever taking the time to be quiet and enjoy a simple day of rest and re-charging. During this one-day silent retreat, you will have the opportunity to take a break and enjoy a day of silence, meditation, rest and reflection at our beautiful Temple in Los Feliz.

We will offer gentle, guided meditations and advice for what to do with your mind during the breaks. Light vegetarian refreshments will be served. You are welcome to go for walks in the lovely neighborhood, nestled beneath the hills of Griffith Park.

Everyone welcome – no previous experience necessary!

9am-10am            Session #1
10:30-11:30am     Session #2
12-1pm                   Session #3

Silence will begin after the first session.


$25  /  $12.50 Level 1 & 2 members /  FREE Level 3 & 4 members    *Learn about KMC LA membership here.
