5 Day November Retreat

November 20, 2020 - November 25, 2020

5 Day November Retreat

Overview of Tantra teachings by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX. From November 2002, Maitripa Centre, Healesville.

Anyone who wants to understand Tibetan Buddhism really has to have some understanding of Buddhist Tantra, even if they are not doing tantric practices as such… Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX

Retreat is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our understanding of Buddhism, strengthen our meditation practice and to join together as a community sangha. In this time of COVID-19, an online retreat provides a unique circumstance to participate in the retreat schedule from the comfort of our own homes.

The daily program of the E-Vam Institute November retreat includes Indo-Tibetan yoga and pranayama sessions, shamatha and walking meditation, and the traditional puja practices of Green Tara and Chenrezig. The teachings presented during the retreat will be the Overview of Tantra taught by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX at the November retreat in 2002. Rinpoche explains the significance of tantra in helping us deal skilfully with all aspects of our human condition, as well as detailing what is involved in tantric practices. Rinpoche makes accessible teachings that are often misunderstood in the West. This series of teachings on the Overview of Tantra occurred in the same year as Rinpoche’s teachings on Transforming the Mind and Meditation and Depression which were both presented in August of this year.

The 5-Day November Retreat is suitable for beginners through to experienced practitioners.

Bookings open 7pm Friday 2nd October 2020.
