  • About This Event

    Retreat requirements: This retreat is OPEN to those who have a sincere wish to receive a Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment in the near future (or who already have a Highest Tantra empowerment). If you are unsure please contact us for more information.

    This is a precious opportunity to gain a heartfelt and deep experience of the joyful practice of Vajrayogini.  By relying upon Buddha Vajrayogini we will discover the true nature of our world and the real meaning of Tantra – the inner realization that directly protects us from all ordinary appearances and conceptions – the root of samsara.

    The retreat will emphasize deepening our experience of both generation stage and completion stage (meditating on the channels, winds, and drops) using the Vajrayogini “Blissful Path” sadhana. There will be four sessions of guided retreat every day.
