Tranquility and Dzogchen Retreat, Villa Sumaya, Guatemala

May 13, 2017 - May 26, 2017

Lake Atitlan Volcano and sky

Please join Lama Mark in 2017 for a two week exploration of Dzogchen. Held at Villa Samaya in the tropical region of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, surrounded by three volcanos, and open big sky and water views.

Lama Mark will teach various forms of tranquility meditation to help beginners and experienced practitioners alike as a preparation to entering Dzogchen meditation. Dzogchen — Great Completion — has a training called Trekchö or “thoroughly cutting through’. Trekchö, is a form of natural and effortless Penetrative Insight. It requires a unification of wisdom and compassion and a profound understanding of the inseparability of the view, meditation and conduct as taught in the Dzogchen traditions. Lama Mark will be teaching from the text called the Three Words that Strike the Vital Point, also called The Three Statements of Garab Dorje, Patrül Rinpoche’s auto-commentary and Lho Ontül Rinpoche’s recent teachings and meditation instruction on this profound approach to full awakeness and liberation.

There will be opportunities for interviews with the teacher.
