With this course, we want to provide ngöndro practitioners of all traditions with a supportive environment to find new inspiration and delve deeper into their practice. Everyone brings their own practice text. There will be teachings as well as times of group and individual practice. This retreat is led by Do Tulku Rinpoche with the support of Arne Schelling who is authorized as a Ngöndro teacher by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. He is also available to answer questions from Ngöndro Gar practitioners.
This year we will mainly focus on the practices of Vajrasattva and Mandala. A prerequisite for this retreat is either the participation in a Ngöndro program (such as Ngöndro Gar, The Complete Path etc.) or at least one of the highest Tantra initiations (e.g. Cakrasamvara, Hevajra, Kalacakra etc.).
Dates: The main part of the retreat begins on Wednesday evening, 25.11.2020, at 7 pm with dinner (the first teaching starts at 8 pm) and ends on Sunday with lunch at 1 pm. For those who would like to spend a whole week in retreat, it is possible to stay until Wednesday, 02.12.2020. During that time, Do Tulku Rinpoche and Arne Schelling will continue to be available for questions, but the focus will be on individual practice sessions.
Course fees: 4-day retreat: 180 Euro, 1-week retreat: 210 Euro
