Date details +

    All Rigden Ngöndro practitioners are warmly invited to this practice and study retreat which will take place right before Rigden Abhisheka.  The retreat is organized so that participants can fulfill the residential group component of their practice requirements. Partial attendance is invited. According to the Guidelines for Group Ngöndro Practice Intensives: 

    "The Sakyong has emphasized the importance and power of group vajrayana practice. With all of our practices, the point is not only how we do our individual practice, but how we connect to each other and live our lives altogether. Particularly with our aspiration to create enlightened society, it is important for us to gather, practice, study, work, and celebrate as a community. In addition, practicing under the guidance of senior teachers in a group setting will deepen our study and practice of the vajrayana."-

    JEREMY HAYWARD became a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1970.

He published a book on the Shambhala teachings in 1995: Sacred World, the Shambhala Path to Gentleness, Bravery and Power.  Jeremy was appointed acharya in 1996 and was acharya-in-residence at Dechen Chöling from 1999 to 2005, and at Dorje Denma Ling from 2005 to 2012.
