About This Event

The Werma Instructor Training is designed to help meditation instructors provide support for students practicing the Werma Sadhana. The course will engage in topics related to sections of the sadhana, including the viracharya guru, the sadhana’s connection to social engagement, blessing the mind before engaging sacred ayatanas, drawing down the werma through visualization, and confidence in resting in the nature of mind.

Examples of other path related topics: Giving a student guidance before entering retreat and supporting a practitioner going through a crisis in faith.

Online pre-study requirement: Entering the Heart of the Werma Sadhana: Shambhala Kyerim with Christie Cashman and study of the sadhana commentary by John Rockwell in the Werma Manual.

Pre-requisites: Scorpion Seal 2 and Ngondro Instructor Training (either the Primordial Rigden Ngondro or the Kagyu Ngondro.)

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.
