Dzogchen Meditation: Gateway to the Innate Freedom of Being

Retreat is a rare and precious opportunity to immerse oneself in spiritual exploration and discovery, especially amidst the challenges of peace we encounter in our world and in our mind.  These timeless teachings come to us from the Tibetan Buddhist wisdom tradition of Dzogchen and have been passed down in an unbroken lineage for over 14 centuries. 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 week of awakening. This is a joyful opportunity to unfurl your heart and mind, supported by the beautiful natural elements of sky, mountains and ocean, as well as precious Dzogchen pith instructions. All levels of meditators are welcome!

Lama Surya is a pioneer of Buddhism in the West and has dedicated his life to the transmission of Dzogchen.  He has offered meditation retreats for over 30 years in a unique and directly accessible way. Lama Surya teachings will include ample time for Q & A. The retreat schedule includes guided and silent meditations, outdoor sky-gazing meditation, dharma talks, heart-opening chanting and uplifting Tibetan Energy Yoga each morning. Lama Surya will be assisted by Lama Daniela and Lama Christopher. Private interviews with each will be available.

Outside of the main teaching hall, the precious gift of Noble Silence is observed, allowing us a tranquil container to explore the mind and deepen our experience to its fullest. In addition to formal sessions, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views over Malibu and the Pacific Ocean.
