Vajrayana: The Mandala Principle

With Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam

July 7 - 14, 2018

In this retreat we will study how the Vajrayana developed historically and learn the fundamentals of Vajrayana practice. Lopön Charlotte will give an introduction to the 5 Buddha families, the mandala principle and deity yoga, as well as transmission for the 5 Dakini Mandala, the 5 Buddha Mandala and the Yab Yum Mandala.

There will be noble silence and six hours of practice per day as well as two hours of teachings. An optional oral exam will be given at the end of the retreat. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate children on the land during this retreat.

This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program and the Gateway Program.

This retreat is open to all.

Suggested Dana: $240-$320
