Mahamudra Retreat

With Acharya Susan Chapman

March 31 - April 6, 2019

Program is fully booked

The Kootenay Shambhala Centre is pleased to announce that Acharya Susan Chapman is returning to Nelson to lead our Annual Mahamudra Retreat.

Acharya Chapman tentatively plans to teach Maitri Space Awareness and the 5 Buddha Families, as well as other Mahamudra teachings by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, along with traditional investigations.

We will practice Ashe Mahamudra, but we will not be offering Ngondro and Werma practice  due to the shorter time span and fullness of the content.

This will be a very rich and diverse offering, beginning at 8:30 am, ending at 6:00 pm daily, with personal study sessions suggested in the evenings.  A light breakfast and lunch will be provided, the program will end before dinner each day.

In order to attend this retreat, completion of Sacred World Assembly is necessary.

Patron price is $500, regular price is $450.
