July 19 – 21, 2019
We are delighted to welcome back Lama Lena to the Rime Center, July 19 through 21st. Lama Lena will be giving teachings on the Twenty-one Taras and leading us through guided practices. Tara embodies many of the qualities of feminine principle. She is the source, the female aspect of the universe, which gives birth to warmth, compassion and relief from suffering.
This event is open to everyone, but please consider being a sponsor for this retreat for as little at $150. Your sponsorship will ensure everyone can attend these wonderful teachings.
Practice sessions will include both indoor and outdoor practices. The teaching sessions will build upon themselves so participants are required to attend Friday evening session if they want to attend the Saturday morning session and you must attend Saturday morning to attend Saturday afternoon.
Lama Lena is a highly accomplished yogini in the Dzogchen tradition who will deliver very clear and accurate teachings on Dzogchen. She is accessible, easy to relate to, open to questions, and willing to deal directly with many of the questions to which we are seeking answers. When she is not traveling, teaching, or translating, she works providing medical assistance to the Tibetan refugee community as well as the local Indian villagers and mountain tribes people. At the request of H.E., Zigar Choktrul Rinpoche and Ven. Wangdor Rinpoche, as well as many Western and Tibetan dharma students, she has been traveling and teaching from the lineages she holds in an informal style that is humorous, artful, and well worth experiencing.
