Highest Yoga Tantra Completion Stage Retreat

Saturday, Jan 15 & Sunday, Jan 16 • teachings & guided retreat
Monday, Jan 17 - Wednesday Jan 19 • self-guided retreat

with Resident Teacher, Gen Chogyop • $75/person

Please note, you must have Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment to participate in this retreat

Gen Kelsang Chogyop will lead this retreat, focusing on Completion Stage practices as outlined in Tantric Grounds and Paths.

Using the practice of Great Liberation of the Mother will give us plenty of time to meditate in depth. Gen Chogyop's accompanying commentary will emphasize how we can engage in these powerful and profound practices with lightness, flexibility and deep enjoyment, and how we can continue to train in the experiences during the meditation break.

We will also deeply explore the essence of Kadampa Buddhism, the union of Sutra and Tantra, seeing how all our lam rim practices of renunciation, love, compassion etc. naturally find expression within our tantric practices.

This retreat is perfect for those who have recently received empowerment, those who wish to revive their practice and those who wish to deepen their familiarity with Completion Stage practices.

The Path to Inner Peace Retreat

Saturday, Jan 29 & Sunday, Jan 30 • teachings & guided retreat

with Kadampa Meditation Teachers

$50 for full retreat -or- $30 per day • TTP discount applies

This retreat is suitable for everyone and we welcome all levels of meditator, including beginners

Although we all want to be happy all the time, right now we don't know how to create lasting happiness. We feel up when we have a new partner, a new job or a new possession - and then we crash down when the newness wears off, when the situation changes or when our plans don't turn out the way we expected.  Deep and lasting happiness depends upon a steady, calm, and peaceful mind, not on external situations. 

 

How do we cultivate this lasting peace and happiness from within? Through meditation. This retreat offers a solid foundation to create your own peace of mind by developing a daily meditation practice. You'll learn meditation techniques through gentle guided meditations of Buddha's timeless wisdom - "Lamrim" - the stages of the path to enlightenment.  No experience necessary, everyone is welcome.

Livestream via ZOOM, In person TBD

Please register before the session begins, late registration is not available.

Saturday, Jan 29

Session 1 • 10:30- 11:30am
