Dzogchen Practice Intensive (Crestone, CO) 2022

With Tsoknyi Rinpoche

September 10 - 17, 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.

The profound teachings of Dzogchen help us to directly discover our primordially pure nature, allowing our confused concepts and emotions to be naturally liberated. This direct and non-conceptual knowing is intimately intertwined with bodhicitta, which is the altruistic intention to become a Buddha with the motivation to relieve the suffering of all sentient beings fully.  In this retreat, Rinpoche will teach us how to generate authentic bodhicitta (awakening mind) and the precious awareness of our true, unchanging nature.

Registration for the in-person and streaming retreats 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.

Prerequisite:  Having received pointing out instructions from a qualified Vajrayana or Dzogchen master. If you have not been to an open retreat with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, you will be asked to watch an open retreat teaching online to familiarize yourself with his way of teaching and use of language. The Registrar will provide a link once you register.

There are two options:

  1. If this retreat is held in-person, we expect the retreat to be filled to capacity very quickly and we may need to close registration early. If you wish to attend, please register and find housing as needed) as soon as possible after registration opens. Please do not book lodging until your retreat registration is confirmed.
  2. 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].
