During the traditional retreat month of January, we spend four Sunday evenings gaining authentic experience of the deeply inspiring Highest Yoga Tantra practice of Vajrayogini, using the very brief self-generation sadhana, The Blissful Path.

Because this is an advanced retreat, these sessions are only open to those who have already received Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini (and those experienced students who have a sincere intention to receive these empowerments soon).



4pm - 5pm Teaching
5:30pm - 6:30pm Meditation 1

This evening of retreat will focus on the profound practice of The Three Bringings, the very essence of generation stage.
