Travel with seasoned, expert masters of the Nyingma and Dudjom tradition on this journey to discover your own Wisdom Mind. Learning ancient tantric and shamanic practices, we will carry these into the vast and spacious heartland of Mongolia. We will focus on:
Tamdrin, the Sacred Horse practice that is extraordinary for mastering your world and bringing unruly conditions under control of Wisdom Mind.
The black wrathful feminine wisdom aspect of Vajrayogini, Black Troma is a complete system of mantra, powa, Chod and even Karma Mudra, and one of Dudjom Lingpa’s greatest treasures.
is a powerful method of cutting through obstacles: material, emotional and spiritual. It continually clarifies and free ones body, mind and spirit, as well as healing others. Relying on Feminine Wisdom energy, the body itself becomes an offering to all beings in the universe. This is the ultimate practice of the compassionate spiritual warrior, a rich approach to life that leads to ultimate liberation.
We will receive the Trom and other empowerments and progressive training in this and other transformative sacred technologies. We will learn the healing Hayagriva-Garuda practice, Troma daily Chod and much more (more details soon!).
Visiting sacred places, monasteries and wild power spots in the Mongolian hinterland, we will balance the outer and inner landscape, purifying the earth and uncovering our inherent clarity.
We will participate in the great Buddhist revival of Mongolia, bringing back sacred practices that were banned for 50 years by the Soviets and transmitting some for the first time ever.
