There is now a limited time to register for the Parchangma Chöd retreat on June 23-27 at Tara Mandala. We invite you to join us in learning this wonderful and powerful Chöd practice with Lama Tsultrim Allione and Anna Raithel, bringing us healing by cutting through fear, fixation, and self-clinging, and giving rise to the awareness of the pure nature of emotions and the emptiness of mental obscurations.
The Parchangma Chöd is an integral part of Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Rangdröl (Self-Liberation of Clinging) treasure cycle (terma). It is also an essential practice in deepening one’s experience of Chöd, particularly with the upcoming Chöd Conference in July and the “Machig Labdrön in Bhutan: Two Week Pilgrimage” with Lama Tsultrim this October.
Please enjoy this 3-min video from Lama Tsultrim talking about Chöd Pilgrimage, also known as “Difficult Places” Pilgrimage (Nyensa in Tibetan).
Join Lama Tsultrim and Anna Raithel for Parchangma Chöd on June 23-27. This is also a required retreat for those in the Gateway Program. For more information about this retreat and teachers, please see below.
