Dzogchen Cycles 2018

 

Dzogchen Cycles Program Year II

April 2018-February 2019

 

BEING WISDOM

We continue!

Wisdom, whose essence is compassion, the beating heart of our entire path, is the core of our teaching and training this year. Teaching Tuesdays and the three Dzogchen Cycles Retreats all offer portals to the wisdom of steadfastness on the path. They introduce as well diverse nuances of the wisdom dimension itself – its empty dimension, the wholeness that opens as dualism recedes, careful identification of coarse and subtle resistances that even the most determined practitioner inevitably encounters on the path. In particular this year we turn to tantric practice as an avenue for furthering the embodiment of wisdom in a non-dual manner.

Apply now to join the program.  We’re so glad you’re interested in participating in Dzogchen Cycles retreats and teaching series!  The application period for the full program (with ongoing support resources) is over now, but you can apply to join upcoming retreats and/or get access to the materials from past Cycles retreats and for more details on the program.  Click here to see what’s available from 2017’s curriculum.

Adzo.m Rinpoche’s YESHE TSOGYAL : WISDOM DAKINI FOUNDATIONS

 

Wisdom is the essence of the Dakini. Every line of this practice opens to a facet of her presence. This practice is rich, simple, and resonant with the power of its revealer.

Adz.om Rinpoche, one of the most renowned Dzogchen masters in Tibet today, received a direct vision of Yeshe Tsogyal while visiting her sacred soul-lake north of Yaru Drak. This unique practice is the fruition of that encounter, first privately revealed at Tārā Mandala in 2007 and thereafter held very closely until this year. It is what the ancient (Nyingma) traditions consider a treasure (Ter), revealed by someone who was entrusted by Guru Rinpoche in the 8th century to bring it forth at the right time. It now forms part of Rinpoche’s own Ter Cycle, the Clear Light Heart Essence (‘Od gsal snying thig) and, with his blessings, is the focus of our Dzogchen Cycles’ wisdom teachings this year.

A.dzom Rinpoche has recently asked Lama Rigzin Drolma (Anne C. Klein) to teach and develop commentary on this profound practice. She says, “I am honored and delighted to share this practice with everyone who takes a sincere interest in it and who will make a sustained connection with its essence.”

Teaching Tuesdays 2018

 

Summer Sequence (June 5 – August 21) Sustaining Power on the Path. Our ripening requires staying with our path.

This series serves as a boost for long time practitioners, a portal to power for everyone.
