Dreamlike Enlightenment: Understanding Illusion from a Dzogchen Perspective

About This Event

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.”

If even enlightenment is said to be dreamlike, what is it to be fully awake, free from all illusion, yet with a heart full of compassion? Rinpoche will teach on these profound themes in this retreat from a Dzogchen perspective.

We are very fortunate that Rinpoche has specially invited Khandro La Tseringma to be with us at this retreat (if she gets a U.S. Visa in time). Khandro is an oracle for the Dalai Lama, healer and dharma teacher. Here is a little bit more about her from an interview for Sumeru Books. (contact info blocked)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
