Innate Kalachakra Retreat

January 16 - January 23

| USD $540

Through the profound practice of Innate Kalachakra, it is possible to establish a pure perception of reality by strengthening your awareness of your own essential nature.

In the first portion of this retreat, Khentrul Rinpoche will provide you with the oral transmission and instructions for engaging in the common preliminary practices as presented in the text “The Divine Ladder” by Jetsun Taranatha.

After developing a basic foundation of practice, students will then be introduced to the visualisation practice of deity yoga with mantra recitation. Khentrul Rinpoche will first bestow the Seven Empowerments of a Growing Child, preparing the students to enter into the generation stage practices. They will then accumulate mantras through the essential practice of Innate Kalachakra as taught in the Jonang-Shambhala Tradition.
