Blissful Path Retreat: Jan 18 – 21, 2017

With Gen Kelsang Chogden *HYT empowerments are required to participate in this retreat which will help you draw closer to the Dakinis.

There will be three sessions each day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 18 -20.  This is an unguided retreat.  The first session will consist of Quick Path without tormas, the second session will be Blissful Path with time for silent study at the beginning and 25 minutes of silent meditation in the midst of Blissful Path; the third session will consist of silent study, Blissful Path with silent meditation and tormas from Quick Path, except Friday where the third session will be Wishfulfilling Jewel with a tsog offering.

Please bring the Sadhana, The Blissful Path, The New Guide to Dakini Land (the sadhana has been revised so is not correct in the book), and Quick Path sadhana (or use your book),  instruments plus mandala kit for the first and last session, if you wish.  We do not have copies of The Blissful Path in the Gompa.  You may purchase one in the book store.

On Saturday, we are offering a day retreat with teachings and guided meditations in each session, using only The Blissful Path Sadhana.
