Although primarily grounded in the Tibetan tradition, Dr. Lye will draw from a broad range of Buddhist sources to help participants in this retreat develop an understanding and appreciation of the three qualities of emptiness, knowing and radiance. These qualities of our innermost minds turn up again and again in most Buddhist contemplative practices, whether originating from the lush jungles of Southeast Asia, the meditation halls of East Asia, or the snowy peaks of the Himalayas.

This retreat includes periods of teaching and silent contemplation interspersed with simple ritual-chants and opportunities for discussion. 

Dorje Lopon Dr. Hun Lye is the spiritual teacher and founder of Urban Dharma NC, a Buddhist Center in Western North Carolina. The Dharmata group, EBS, and Dr. William Gorvine of Hendrix College, have invited Dr. Lye to come and teach at EBS. He previously came to Arkansas in the Fall of 2014 to teach and support a sand mandala construction at Hendrix.

These teachings are for all practices at EBS.  Everyone is welcome!
