Living in the moment retreat at Amanpuri

Journey to Peace: Living in the moment

Understanding how to simply let go

Known as the ‘Great Perfection’, Dzogchen is the pinnacle of Vajrayana practice in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, embodying a system of training that awakens the intrinsic nature of the mind to reveal its original essence – utterly perfect and free from duality. This six-night retreat introduces the meditation practice and its theory, guiding participants to let thoughts arise and depart without judgement or action – simply letting go and letting be – to better occupy and live in the present moment.

Journey to Peace

The makings of mastery

Geshe La became a Buddhist monk when he was just 13 years old, taking his vows at the revered Nangzhig Bönpo monastery. In the three decades since, his spiritual journey has taken him all over the world, from studying with the 14th Dalai Lama to introducing and teaching the YungDrung Bon Buddhism in Canada, where he currently resides. Today, he is one of a very few Bon spiritual masters living in the West and qualified to offer this teaching.
