13.07.– 27.07.2019  - 2 week guided Vajrasattva retreat with Drubpön Rachel Dodds and Giorgio Savigliano
13.07.– 10.08.2019  - 4 week Vajrasattva retreat (first 2 weeks guided, second 2 weeks solitary)


We are very happy to begin to offer longer retreat possibilites where students can build their experience and confidence in a supportive, group retreat setting.
This is great chance to go deep in this powerful Ngondro preliminary practice of Vajrasattva that has deep purifying and healing power. We will get instruction on the practice of Vajrasattva and begin a two week guided retreat using the traditional Mahayana Buddhist approach of 4 sessions a day with time for supportive practices of movement, breath and relaxation guided by Giorgio. Some sessions we will do together as a group and some you will do in your own room gaining more personal experience. There will be time for private interviews as needed for questions about your progress or natural challenges presented by the retreat process. Retreat is a necessary part of a practitioner's life. There are certain experiences and understandings that can only arise in secluded, silent introspection and practice. We will practice the 3 boundaries of traditional retreat of body, speech and mind: keeping within the retreat boundaries, keeping full silence, and practicing mindful awareness at all times.

For practictioners with more time and real commitment to advance their Ngondro practice there will be the option to stay in retreat for another 2 weeks in solitary retreat. Drupon Rachel will still be available for phone interviews as needed during the two weeks, but will not be there in person. The retreatants will stay in their private room and complete the 4 sessions in solitary retreat. Gaining such capacity is really where one comes face to face with oneself and learns to put into practice the words of our teachers. There is no greater benefit we can do in this life than to practice in retreat for the benefit of all beings.
