Event Details

A retreat with Khenpo Tsering Tashi Teachings on the Heart Sutra & Le’u Dunma

Making time for retreat is an act of self-kindness; an opportunity to put everyday life on pause and prioritise our spiritual journey. 

This is a unique opportunity to spend four days practising in a supportive community and receiving profound experiential teachings with brilliant Tibetan teacher, Khenpo Tsering Tashi. He will teach in person at Rigpa’s National Centre, Newtown, Sydney and virtually to Rigpa centres in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and online.

We will dive into the nature of reality with The Heart of Transcendent Wisdom (Heart Sutra) as well as exploring  Le’u Dünma – the treasure text words of Padmasambhava revealed by Tulku Zangpo Drakpa. Both texts are part of Rigpa’s Complete Path to Enlightenment and show us how to cultivate peace and happiness by working with the mind.

Khenpo will teach in person for two sessions each day. The morning session will be on the Heart Sutra  with the afternoons on Le’u Dünma. Kenpo has a lively, interactive style and welcomes questions. The program will include daily meditation sessions and time for nourishing our social connections.

This national retreat is hosted by Rigpa in its Australian city centres and online. It is open to everyone including newcomers, and students from other Buddhist traditions, in Australia and internationally. (The Heart Sutra teaching thread will be timed so that those in the Americas can easily join the retreat. The Le’u Dünma teaching thread will be programmed so that those in Europe can join in their early morning.)

We wish to be very clear: as is the tradition, we will assist anyone who wishes to attend the January Retreat but who cannot afford the advertised rates to ensure that cost is not a barrier to attendance. To seek assistance please email malcolm.beattie@rigpa.org.au
