One-Day Vajrayana Retreat with Acharya Richard John:



 “This is my personal favorite pith instruction, and I greatly look forward to sharing it and practicing it with you.”  --Acharya John

In the 8th century, Yeshe Tsogyal had a vision in which Vajrayogini gave her these pith instructions for practicing trekchö, known as “cutting through to primordial purity.” Trekchö is the dzokchen equivalent of mahamudra, and both are the epitome of the path of wisdom. This profound but accessible text gives concise instructions for recognizing and resting in the empty and luminous nature of mind.

The day will conclude with a Werma Feast, open to everyone who attends the retreat. Other Shambhala tantrikas who are unable to come to the retreat are welcome to come to the feast also, but they must have already received Werma Sadhana. 



This intensive is for Shambhala Tantrikas, who have attended SWA or Vajrayana Seminary.


Retreat: 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Werma Feast: 6:00 p.m.
