Over the weekend of April 11th and 12th the venerable Acharya Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, a native Tibetan Lama in exile, will be giving public teachings titled "Healing the Mind, Healing the Body" on meditation and healing practices in Owen Sound.

This is the third consecutive year that Rinpoche has come to Owen Sound to provide support for meditation practitioners as well as to introduce the many benefits of meditation to the broader public. The event is being organized in part by Kemble resident and authorized Buddhist teacher Theodore Tsaousidis who offers many mindfulness courses in the area throughout the year.

"Rinpoche is a down to earth, compassionate and devoted teacher who is interested in the individual and what they uniquely need to heal, grow, and move forward," says Theodore Tsaousidis. Previous retreat participant Kathy Hopson says, "We are very fortunate to have the wisdom and gentle manner of Rinpoche with us. Personally, I have experienced the healing power of daily mindfulness practice."

In 1980 Zasep Rinpoche travelled to Canada and taught Buddhist philosophy and religion at the David Thompson University Centre in Nelson, BC. Zasep Rinpoche has now been teaching in the west for over thirty years. He is spiritual director of more than twelve Buddhist meditation centres in Canada, Australia and the United States.

The weekend of teaching will begin on April 11th at 9:30am at the Best Western Inn On the Bay. There is a suggested cost of $60 per day or according to your means. All are welcome. Partial attendance is possible. Detailed information on the event is available at
