About the event

In the early 14th century the Tibetan meditation master known as Rangjung Dorje, the 3rd Karmapa, had a vision in which the early Dzogchen masters Vimalamitra and Padmasambhava appeared and dissolved into the point between his eyebrows. It is said that as this happened, Rangjung Dorje instantly received the transmission for all of the Dzogchen tantras along with a visionary cycle of Dzogchen meditation that arose in his mind which he subsequently wrote down. This became known as the Karma Nyingthik – a unique approach to manifesting the clarity and timeless awareness that is our enlightened nature.

Dzogchen (Sanskrit: Ati Yoga) is the most simple, direct, and profound path to reveal the sky-like nature of our own mind which is clear, vast, and unobstructed by the clouds of afflictive emotions.

Together we will explore direct and pithy instructions on how to access the Ati Yoga state in daily life and liberate the afflictive emotions.  This unique lineage, combined with Lama Justin's clear explanation and practical instructions make this retreat an invaluable support for both beginner and advanced meditators of any lineage.

Join us for this introductory retreat into the heart of Dzogchen meditation from the Karma Nyingthik.
