Dzogchen, also known as the “great perfection,” is a path of self-liberation and the highest form of teaching in the Bön Buddhist tradition. For practitioners, it offers the potential for liberation during a single lifetime and within a single body. The Seven Mirrors of Dzogchen is a powerful heart-essence teaching from the Tibetan Bön tradition, offering a direct introduction to the clear, open awareness of the Dzogchen view as well as methods for maintaining this state.

Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, founder and spiritual director of Chamma Ling and Ligmincha Institute, is an acclaimed author as well as a highly respected and beloved teacher to students throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Fluent in English, Tenzin Rinpoche is renowned for his depth of wisdom; his clear, engaging teaching style; and his ability to make the ancient Tibetan teachings highly accessible and relevant to the lives of westerners.

Times: The full retreat will begin Friday at 9:00 a.m. and conclude mid-afternoon on Sunday. There will be a public talk on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. that will introduce what has been taught in the first day. Here is the schedule:  

  • Friday – 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. including the 7:00 p.m. talk
  • Saturday – 7:45 a.m.-5:30 p.m. followed by fundraising auction to benefit Chamma Ling Colorado
