    with Lama Surya Das

    Awakening to Our Inner Buddha:
    Dzogchen View, Meditation, Action and Integration



    Welcome the beauty and splendor of summer by joining Lama Surya Das on a weekend journey of spiritual exploration. Discover the timeless teachings, from the Tibetan Buddhist wisdom tradition of Dzogchen, passed down through generations of lineage teachers for over 14 centuries.  These experiential instructions nakedly reveal the innate freedom of being, allowing us to bask in the radiant, spacious expanse of Awareness, fully present in every moment, through every circumstance.  

    We invite you to join Dzogchen lineage holder, best-selling author and spiritual activist Lama Surya Das, for a virtual weekend of awakening. This is a joyful opportunity to open your heart and mind to these precious Dzogchen teachings and essential and practical pith instructions.

    All levels of meditators are welcome!

    As an authorized teacher, Lama Surya has shared Dzogchen teachings and practices for over 40 years, dedicating his life to this transmission. In his unique and genuine way, Lama has continued this tradition throughout the Covid-19 pandemic by holding live virtual retreats, for all practitioners from many different spiritual traditions. His light and lively approach has been deemed "fully accessible" by millions of meditators, of all levels

    Lama Surya will offer dharma teachings and allow ample time for Q & A. The program includes guided and silent meditation sessions, sky-gazing meditation, refuge sessions, dharma talks, heart-opening chanting and uplifting Tibetan Energy Yoga each day. 

    Lama Surya gently requests that Noble Silence  be observed from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. Honoring this sacred and ancient practice allows us a tranquil container and inner sanctum to explore the mind and deepen our experience to its fullest. 

    Registration does not include compensation for the teacher, which will be accepted in the traditional form of dana (voluntary donation) in honor of the teachings.
