Buddhist wisdom and self-knowledge is like a panacea—it delivers you beyond this world of suffering, conflict, and confusion into an unsurpassable inner peace and ease that you can attain in this lifetime. Experience a rare, first-time ever dharma transmission, called shaktipat (Sanskrit for sending energy) a spiritual wisdom passed down through an unbroken bloodline in Lama Surya Das’ lineage. A spiritual transmission uses the heart’s wisdom to transmit healing. Receive a transmission of secret knowledge or esoteric wisdom that is practical, transcendent, and life-changing.
The root cause of unhappiness and dissatisfaction is not knowing reality and how things actually work, through mutual interconnectedness and cause-and-effect. Buddhist wisdom says that due to your habitual tendency to see yourself and the world in a narrow, limited, basically impure way, the unenlightened life is very difficult. Yet, there is another way to be and become. Free yourself from mental conditioning and realize your true self as awake, complete, and radiant. Freed of unhappiness and anxiety, you can extend yourself to others, heal yourself, and heal and rebalance the world.
Join Lama Surya Das, bestselling author, is one of the most learned and respected Buddhist teachers in the West.
For the first-time ever, Lama Surya Das will offer darshan—spiritual vision, energy transmission, and Tibetan healing techniques. Open to spiritual sight and experience ways to heal with ritual and ceremony.
Make a transition from living an ordinary life to embracing a sacred spiritual perception within yourself. In Das’ original, light, and lively style, discuss, study, and heal yourself and others while rebalancing and harmonizing all your relations.
All empowerment rituals serve one function: to temporarily transform your normal way of perceiving reality. For instance, when incense is burned, it transforms your normal perception of smell. When sacred music is played, it transforms your normal perception of sound. Through the initiatory esoteric Vajrayana (diamond) ritual of empowerment, mystically transform beyond the habitual patterns and limitations of your conceptual mind. Sustain and expand this experience as Das leads you in potent guided meditations. Through the Medicine Buddha ritual, become empowered to practice the stages of meditation associated with healing and transformative inner-deity practice. Join in healing practices, ceremony, and rituals along with various Tibetan instruments and other sacred objects that:
- Unlock your frozenness, tension, and hang-ups to unleash awakening to your full potential.
- Receive and internalize practices and rituals to bring about healing to your soul-body-mind, community, globe, and environment.
- Gain tools and techniques, practices and principles to further develop your emotional intelligence and alignment with higher purposes and powers.
- Receive ritual blessings of the Medicine Buddha, the Blue Healing Buddha meditation, mantras, chants, and Blue Inner mantra and healing visualizations.
This powerful, empowering immersion is essential for sacred healing. Enjoy and be uplifted with the ceremony of blessings that are pure, edifying, uplifting, and elevating. Open your heart and soul to receive spiritual energy transmissions that will bring secret innermost healings you can use for yourself and others. Take these treasures and gifts home to integrate into your daily life. This retreat is for both new and experienced meditators. Some cushions are available if you would like to sit on the floor, but you may wish to bring your own. Chairs are provided.
