Autumn Three-Day Dzogchen Meditation Retreat
Thursday evening, December 5th to Sunday afternoon, December 8th
in San Marcos, CA
The retreat will introduce and deepen the practice of natural meditation, and recognition of the nature of mind, guided by teachers from this direct, centuries-old lineage. There will be experiential guidance on differentiating ordinary consciousness from primordial Awareness.
Accessible to all, regardless of religion (or none), Dzogchen introduces us to the birthright we all share: the innate freedom of being. Ever-present, yet often momentarily obscured by our habitual patterns of reactivity, this spacious wisdom-awareness is effortlessly revealed. Retreat is a rare and precious opportunity to experientially explore our inmost goodness and freedom, in a contemplative environment, among kindred spirits.
