The 11 Yogas of Vajrayogini Retreat 4 – 7 Jan

Vajrayogini Retreat

Those with highest yoga tantra empowerments* are invited to engage in a Vajrayogini retreat where, over the course of 3 and a half days, we will explore in great detail the profound power of the practice of Buddha Vajrayogini. In each session Gen Tuchen will give commentary on one of the 11 yogas of Vajrayogini practice based on Quick Path to Great Bliss and we will engage in the practice as a group, gradually building up the practice throughout each day and over the course of the retreat.

Following on from the summer festival Tantric empowerments, this retreat is a wonderful way to gain familiarity and understanding of the essence of Vajrayogini Tantra and to strengthen and deepen your personal tantric practice.

*Before engaging in tantric practice, it is necessary to receive empowerment and instructions from a qualified spiritual guide. These empowerments are given every other year at International Kadampa Festivals and occasionally at other events.​
