Odiyan Retreat Center

The Odiyan Programs Faculty is happy to announce two exciting new online 

programs that focus on meditation, devotional practices, and prayer.

Prayer for Our Times

Connecting to the Sacred in the Modern World

A ten-week class with Maria Helena Kubrusly

Our rational mind questions what the heart knows.
We can feel the presence of the sacred even in the midst of the tribulations of daily life. In our hearts we know the existence of something bigger, beyond our routine and everyday concerns. But when we turn to this more open and inviting dimension we may feel insecure, skeptical, or even embarrassed.

Learn to invite the presence of the sacred into your daily life through prayer, mantra, and Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga.

April 17 – June 19, Saturdays, 9:00-10:30 AM
Price: US$200

Maria Helena is a founding member of the Nyingma center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
An Odiyan resident since 1999 who works closely with Tarthang Rinpoche, Maria Helena has taught several online courses from Odiyan and has conducted numerous programs and retreats in Brazil and Europe.
