Dzogchen meditation retreat

Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche

August 25 - 30

We are excited to announce a special retreat from August 25 to 30, 2024, at the Shenten Center, combining teachings and meditation practices, led by the venerable Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche.

This retreat offers a unique opportunity to delve into the depth and wisdom of the Dzogchen tradition, one of the oldest and most revered paths of meditation and spiritual realization in Tibetan Buddhism. Dzogchen, often translated as "Great Perfection", teaches the direct recognition of the innate and enlightened nature of the mind, a state of clarity and tranquility beyond all duality.

During the retreat, Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche will share valuable teachings on Dzogchen practice, as well as guided meditation instructions. These sessions will be an opportunity for participants to experience inner transformation, deepen their understanding of the nature of the mind, and develop a continuous meditative presence in everyday life.

Whether you are an experienced practitioner or new to the path of meditation, this retreat offers a chance to receive authentic teachings and explore profound meditative practices in a supportive and inspiring environment.
