Take a look at the offerrings for this year:
The Lotus Heart Essence: Avalokiteshvara’s Dzogchen
Monday May 9 through Sunday May 16
Immerse yourself in six short Dzogchen texts from Avalokiteshvara’s complete Dzogchen teachings, revealed to Adzom Paylo Rinpoche in 2016 on Potu island. A prayer to compassion embodied; a sādhana; feast (Tshog) practice; prayer to Rahula; liberation through hearing—quintessential instructions; and activities. Joining compassion with wisdom can take a long time in most styles of practice. Find how in Dzogchen, wisdom is there from the start. Thanks to Rinpoche’s blessing, we are offering this for the very first time in the West. Come join us and refresh your heart!
The Very Heart of the Great Compassionate One’s Liberation of All Beings
Friday September 30th to Sunday October 2nd
A weekend retreat of deep focus on the main sadhana from Adzom Paylo Rinpoche’s Avalokiteshvara treasure, a rare instance seamlessly uniting Avalokiteshvara and Dzogchen. Rinpoche closes this text by saying “Those who practice this with excellence gain liberation in this life. Those with middling skill find realization and freedom in the Bardo. Others find the supreme pure land. In the end, self and others find liberation.” He has explicitly blessed Lama Rigzin Drolma and Lama Namgyal to share these teachings.
Liberation through Hearing the Seven Syllables: A Vast Golden Heart
February 24-26th 2023
Another beautiful union of compassion/Avalokiteshvara and Dzogchen from Adzom Paylo Rinpoche, a teaching on the Dzogchen meaning of these seven syllables Om Mani Padme Hum. The text contains pith instructions associated with the seven syllables, redolent with natural effortless space and compassion. Join us for this retreat held during Losar, the Tibetan New Year, when wholesome activities are amplified a hundred thousand times
