Ten-Day Mahamudra Retreat
with Richard John
March 3 / 12:00 AM - March 14 / 12:00 AM
This annual Mahamudra Retreat at Casa Werma will be structured according to the classic text by the Karmapa IX, “Pointing Out the Dharmakaya.” This retreat will align the traditional investigation and pointing out instructions of mahamudra and trekcho. The lung for this practice will be given at the beginning of the retreat.
Mahamudra, the “great seal,” is among the most profound streams of teaching and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism. Revered as a powerful support for all other tantric practices, it is also extremely simple and direct, focused on recognizing and gaining confidence in the true nature of mind through direct experience.
This retreat is appropriate for Shambhala tantrikas at all levels of practice. Scorpion Seal practitioners will have two separate sessions for the SSA “morning practices.”
All participants must enter the retreat at the very beginning and commit to the entire 10-day retreat.
