The timeless wisdom tradition of Dzogchen teaches that we are all Buddhas by nature, we have only to recognize that in ourselves and in others. These enlightening teachings reveal to us a world of awakened wisdom and love.  Naturally interconnected, we can awaken through the practice of relationship—to each other and to the entire array of our experiences.  "Everything Must Be Meditated", as one great master says. We invite you to join Lama Surya Das for this rare weekend of meditation, awakened awareness, exploration, relaxation & laughter…together.

Meditate with Dzogchen lineage holder and best-selling author Lama Surya as he leads in his unique and lively style, combining direct guidance in meditation and user-friendly Dharma teachings. Foremost will be his accessible introduction to the Nature of Mind: the moment of recognition as to who we truly are. There will be ample opportunity for questions. The topic is appropriate for those new to spiritual exploration as well as seasoned practitioners.


LAMA SURYA DAS
Lama Surya Das was among the first spiritual explorers to encounter the great Tibetan masters in Asia; he is a Lineage holder in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and a pioneer in bringing these sacred teachings to the West. His 40+ years of study and practice have included more than 8 years in secluded retreat. He began teaching in the U.S. with Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche, who formally authorized him to transmit the teachings of Dzogchen—the Great Perfection. His  special  gift  is  the  ability  to  transmit  the  very  pith  of  Dzogchen  instructions  with expansive warmth, poetry and abundant good humor, in a way that is accessible to all. He teaches and leads retreats around the world, and has reached millions through the publication of 13 books, including his best-seller Awakening the Buddha Within and his most recent work Buddha Standard Time: Awakening to the Infinite Possibilities of Now.
