Chenrezig’s Ring of Fire


A Seasonal Offering with Lama Rod 

Join us each season for a virtual offering of Chenrezig's Ring of Fire practice with Lama Rod Owens.


In this practice, the Tantric deity known in Tibetan as Chenrezig (Sanskrit: Avalokiteshvara) becomes a representation of our own capacity for boundless love, opening a doorway into that love's energy and wisdom. Over time and through practice, we create a direct experience of our own loving qualities which can become one of the most skillful ways to hold space for difficult emotions as they arise. All are welcome!

These seasonal practice spaces are for you if you are seeking to:

  • Learn what deity practice is like if you are new to it. 
  • If you’re familiar with deity practice, experience the similarities and differences between Chenrezig and other expressions of deity practice like Medicine Buddha and Ma Tara.
  • Deepen your embodiment of awakened care, which Lama Rod defines in The New Saints.
  • Explore an energetic modality for releasing dualistic fixations while expanding capacity to experience unconditional love.
  • Connect the liberation of the individual and the collective through clarity in the midst of suffering.

Closed Captioning will be available.
