Some months ago, we announced a retreat with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu to be held in Merigar. Rinpoche is currently recuperating his health and his personal doctor advised him not travel at this time. He also did not say when Rinpoche will be able to start back with his teaching program.
We hope from the depth of our hearts that he will be able to travel and be at Merigar for this retreat in June. Should it not be like that, we know that he will in any case be with us, we who are dedicated to his Teachings and to the care of Merigar, the place that he put so much time and energy to build and make evolve.
Many are asking what will this retreat be like, if there are not the usual morning teaching sessions with Rinpoche.
Below you can read the provisional program.
The morning sessions will be a wonderful occasion for all participants to meet, deepen, and most of all practice the instructions drawn from The Mirror. An Advice on Presence and Awareness, by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
In the afternoon sessions:
For those who come for the first time in Merigar there will be specific instructions on practices of our Community, such as Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dance, Khaita Joyful Dances.
For those who are already students of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, there will be practice sessions on Rushen as explained in ‘The Stairway to Liberation’ and an introduction to one of the most essential Dzogchen texts, ‘The Total Space of Vajrasattva’ (Dorje Sempa Namkha Che), along with the weekly program that the Master advised all practitioners of the Dzogchen Community to undertake.
During the retreat we offer many other activities, as you can read in the program.
A great retreat is awaiting us, if you have not planned yet, get ready to join us!
