Dreamlike Enlightenment: Understanding Illusion from a Dzogchen Perspective (Crestone, CO) 2022
With Tsoknyi Rinpoche
September 2 - 9, 2022
Teachings: Tsoknyi Rinpoche
Translation: Adam Kane
Please Note: Due to the rapidly changing conditions with the Covid virus, we have delayed registration for this retreat to the latest possible date. We will post any updates here by June 8th.
Tsoknyi Rinpoche often quotes an ancient teaching of the Buddha: “My dreamlike form appears to dreamlike beings to show them the dreamlike path that leads to dreamlike enlightenment.” (Bhadrakalpa Sutra)
If even enlightenment is said to be dreamlike, what is it to be fully awake, free from illusion, yet with a heart full of compassion? Rinpoche will teach on these profound themes in this retreat.
Registration for this retreat will open on June 15, 2022, at noon MDT and will close when the retreat is full, but no later than 5 p.m. August 15, 2022.
We expect this retreat to be filled very quickly. If you wish to attend, please register (and find housing as needed) as soon as possible. Please do not book lodging until your retreat registration is confirmed.
There are three options:
- If this retreat is held in-person, it will be an open, foundational retreat and all are welcome to attend. We expect the retreat to be filled to capacity very quickly and we may need to close registration early.
- This retreat will also be streamed live for three days and end before pointing out instructions (normally done on the morning of the fourth full day). There are no prerequisites, all are welcome to attend.
- The entire retreat will also be streamed to students who have had pointing out instructions with Rinpoche or another qualified Dzogchen or Vajrayana master.
Should you have any questions about registering for this retreat, please contact the Registrar, Susan, at: [email protected].
