Urban Retreat Guided by Christiana Polites
Sorig Khang Portland is very happy to be hosting a Yuthok Nyingthig Outer Guru Yoga seven day meditation retreat.
October 28th - November 3rd, 2017
Suggested donation is $350, lunch included
The Outer Guru Yoga practice, also known as the 'Wish Fulfilling Jewel' is the first of four Guru Yogas in the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition and is a powerful practice for creating a direct link with the blessings of Yuthok in one's own life and practice.
Completion of this retreat also authorizes one to make use of the healing blessings of Yuthok and the four dakinis for the direct benefit of others through visualization healing (this practice, called the 'Yuthok's Healing Activities' is taught separately).
The retreat will be an urban retreat, of similar format to our recent Ngondro retreat led by Drukmo Gyal Dakini with approximately ten hours of practice daily divided into four sessions. Local Portland residents can sleep at their own home, although observing silence and refraining from internet use is encouraged. Very limited accommodation for out of town guests is available at the center, please e-mail for more information.
To attend this retreat, one must have completed a seven day Yuthok Nyingthig ngondro retreat, either alone or in a group, as well as have received the Yuthok Nyingthig empowerment.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
"If the supreme teaching of the Guru Sadhana Dharma Cycle of of the Yuthok Nyingthig did not have the blessing of simultaneous practice and accomplishment, then the people of this degenerate age, entangled in worldly desire and weak in determination for long retreats, would not be able to practice.
However, if this, the accomplishment of my life-force itself, is practiced without distraction by a faithful person for seven days, then I vow that I shall reveal well my face to them, and I shall grant them teachings and closely instruct them."
