May 19th—June 18th

Date details +

    “When mind is without reference point, that is mahàmudrà. When you are accustomed to and familiar with this, unsurpassable awakening is attained.”

    – Tilopa; Mahàmudrà: The Ocean of Definitive Meaning, p 174.

    Please join retreat leaders Elizabeth Callahan (via Zoom), Scott Wellenbach and Nancy Huszagh for an advanced, month-long mahamudra retreat.

    We will use as the practice text, the shamatha and vipashyana meditation instructions from the ninth Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje’s Pointing Out the Dharmakaya, translated by the Vajravairochana Translation Committee.

    The retreat will follow a traditional three-year retreat format -- four practice sessions per day. Authorization to attend is restricted to Vajrayana practitioners.

    You can purchase both texts and Commentary for Pointing Out the Dharmakaya from Nalanda Translation from Nalanda Translation.

    We may also refer to the text Moonbeams of Mahamudra, which is available from Amazon in Canada, or USA.

    This is a vajrayana program restricted to tantrikas and sadhakas who have received pointing out instruction.
