Dzogchen autum retreat

The dzogchen view based on the aspiration of the Gongpa Zangthal

Course number

This autumn retreat on the famous aspiration provides an opportunity to deeply explore the view of dzogchen and to see the many ways in which we abandon it. The practice itself is to simply settle into the view, which self-liberates all obscurations.

The aspiration is part of the Gongpa Zangthal, which belongs to the Jangter or Northern Treasures. The course will focus on the revelation of the inseparability of awareness and clarity through practice.

Copies of the text in English will be handed out at the beginning of the retreat.

James Low’s deep insight into the dzogchen teachings, his winning presence, and his sound understanding of human psychology–seasoned with a good sense of humour–make him an exceptional teacher. James teaches in a clear, understandable English. It is highly recommend that you take part in the whole retreat.
