one-day retreat for people of color with H. Margarita Loinaz

In the Buddhist tradition, we take refuge in the Three Jewels: The Buddha, The Dharma and The Sangha. In the Great Perfection Teachings of the Nyingma Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, we add the refuge of the Great Mother — The Perfection of Sublime Knowing. This ultimate refuge has also been called “The Mother of All Buddhas” because its dawning in the mind leads to the freedom of a Buddha. In this daylong, we will explore the power of this inner refuge and its potential for transforming our lives.

H. Margarita Loinaz, MD has been a Buddhist practitioner since 1977 in the Tibetan and Theravada traditions. Her current teaching integrates social and environmental awareness with the Great Perfection/Dzogchen Teachings. She is a graduate of the first Community Dharma Leader’s Program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center where she also helped to establish the Diversity Program and taught at the first People of Color retreat in 1999. As a physician, she served Latinos, Day Laborers and the Homeless population in San Francisco for many years and mentored medical students through UCSF. She is originally from the Dominican Republic.
