Five-Month Meditation Program
This cycle is the continuation of the three-month shamatha program with Drupön Rinpoche. We will have weekly online sessions on Fridays at 7:00 PM Pacific Standard Time starting on March 22nd until August 23rd, 2024. For three weeks we will focus on the instructions drawn from The Royal Seal of Mahāmudrā: A Guidebook for the Realization of Coemergence and from the Ganges Mahāmudrā texts. Lama’s approach will combine the oral guidance he received from his root guru, the Mahāmudrā and Dzogchen yogi Lama Neljorpa, along with his own experiential insights based on years of solitary meditation retreats. During the fourth week, our precious Drupla will supplement our formal meditation practice with bardo-related instructions. This four-week cycle will continue for the duration of the program. The program will go on for five months, however we will take one or two Fridays off to give Lama a break. The breaks will be announced gradually. The teachings will be given in Tibetan language with English translation. For those who cannot attend live, we will be providing access to recordings. In those recordings, we will also provide closed captioning (CC) in Spanish and Portuguese. The cost for the whole program is on a sliding scale of 200 to 400 USD based on each participant’s financial situation. Should anyone be unable to afford the fee please email us to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your situation. If you wish to sign up for the teachings, please do so by clicking below.
