Urban Retreat with Dr Nida Chenagtsang

Add To Cart

Ati Yoga (Tib: Dzogchen), literally meaning the ‘utmost yoga,’ is the pinnacle of Buddhist Vajrayana practice. It is the most simple, direct, and profound path to reveal the primordial wisdom which is one’s basic nature.

In the Yuthok Nyingthig cycle of spiritual teachings the chapter on Ati Yoga is called ‘The Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana’. It is the secret path for realizing the final rainbow body, the expression of the complete transformation and control over the elements of matter, energy, and mind.

In this second in a series of special Ati Yoga teachings at Sorig Khang Portland, Dr Nida will teach the Ati Yoga preliminary practices and aspects of trekchod, 'Cutting Through Hardness' in the context of a four day non-residential practice-focussed urban retreat.

Teachings will be based on Dr Nida's book, Mirror of Light: A Commentary on Yuthok's Ati Yoga, Volume One and the forthcoming Weapon of Light: Introduction to Ati Yoga Meditation, available from SKY Press

Pre-registration for this course is required. Space is limited.

In order to attend this retreat, one must have completed a seven day Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro retreat (alone or in a group). Completion of the ngondro practices in a different lineage also fulfills this pre-requisite.

Please e-mail with any questions.
