DZOGCHEN CENTER SUMMER MEDITATION RETREAT
with LAMA SURYA DAS
The Three Vital Points That Strike At The Core
We are all Buddhas by nature--we only have to awaken and recognize who we are and how we fit perfectly in this world. This is the teaching of the innate Great Perfection--Dzogchen. Introducing us to this natural wisdom and compassion is the life-work of Lama Surya Das. For the annual Summer Dzogchen Meditation Retreat, he will teach the Three Vital Points: a set of timeless and inspiring core instructions passed down in this contemplative tradition for more than 1,500 years.
We invite you to join Dzogchen Lineage Holder Lama Surya Das and his special guest teachers for a week of awakening to the joy of naturally-arising timeless awareness. Lama Surya will teach throughout the week and offer lively Q&A sessions, as well as private interviews. In addition to guided and silent meditations, dharma talks, heart-opening chanting and private interviews, this retreat will also feature optional and uplifting Tibetan Energy Yoga each morning.
Outside of the teaching hall, the precious gift of Noble Silence is observed, allowing us the peace and spaciousness to explore the mind, as well as to rest and retreat from the busyness of everyday life & chatter.
In addition to formal sessions, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings through leisurely walks on nearby trails or by just relaxing in the scenic open space overlooking the mighty Hudson River.
