Returning to the Source ~ a Guru Yoga, for modern times with Jangchub

Apr 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pmApr 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm

This retreat offers a modern perspective on the heart of Guru Yoga. Historically, Guru Yoga is the one essential practice in the Tibetan traditions of Mahāmudra and Dzogchen. Why? 

And, why are these practices still so relevant in the modern world, for the unfolding of our deepest human potential. 

Mature people realise that they do not know, what they do not know.

Do you know, that you don’t know?

Do you feel that there is something that you know you should know?

These are fundamental questions for all spiritual pilgrims. Perhaps, you have had many liberating experiences in life and in meditation and yet, maybe, you still feel that there is something missing?

The practices of Guru Yoga provide a clear pathway for understanding the mysteries of being human that transcend languaging. This is a retreat, for those that have the curiosity, wisdom and humility to enquire into the unknown.

The unbroken wholeness of totality is always right here, being pointed out by the Lineage, and waiting to be experienced. Guru Yoga is the direct way to enter into knowing that which, we do not know (yet).

Are you ready for the Leap?

Think about your own teachers, 

the ones who showed you a pathway 

you didn’t know existed. 

Honour them in your writing.
