September 22, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm UTC-8
A 5 week vipaśyanā (Insight) and anupassanā (contemplation) retreat focusing on the classic Twelve Examples of Illusion with teachings from the Drikung Yangzab. The Twelve examples of illusion are often used in completion stage meditations, such as found in the Drikung Yangzab Dzogchen practices and Six Dharmas of Naropa to help with our penetrative insight and compassion. And in addition, the retreat will deepen our practice and understanding of all Vajrayana practices, including Deity Yoga of the generation and completion stages, through explanations of the Mahayana, encompassing Cittamatrin-Yogacara, Madhyamaka, Prasangika and Shentong understandings of the View, Meditation and Conduct. This retreat will also include empowerments, to be announced.
