Golden Age Now! Weekend Retreat to Manifest an Abundant World
This is a paid event and available both In-person and Online.
It takes courage to transform. It takes courage to change. It takes courage to bring about a time of abundance and peace. We are in an incredible moment in time right now. The world is changing rapidly. While some people may think it is getting worse with the riots, pandemic, economic and political problems, it’s a rare opportunity for rapid transformation.
Do you have the courage to be one of the people who transform it for the better? We are not passive observers in the world. Through our genuine dharma practice, we have a profound opportunity to change our world into the Golden Age of peace, harmony and abundance.
What does it mean to manifest peace and harmony?
Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings on the meaning and origin of Dzokden Dharma (Golden Age Dharma) referred to by Taranatha and Dolpopa. He will explain how the Kalachakra tantra prophesizes a time of peace and harmony for our planet and how we can speed up that time. Form a stronger connection to Shambhala by understanding the stages that Shambhala pure land went through to realize peace and harmony. Learn and decide what you can do yourself to contribute to the manifestation of Dzokden, the golden age.
Through discussion, questions, and answers and sharing throughout the day we will come to an understanding of how we personally can be part of this global shift to bring about the Golden Age now.
Teachings and Course Materials
Rinpoche will teach most of the sessions. Rinpoche often has senior students lead prayer practice sessions and some teaching sessions. Recorded materials will also be available from a previous retreat so that Khentrul Rinpoche can dive deeper into new topics.
Request for Questions on the Golden Age
If you have specific questions about the Golden Age, please write to [email protected] so that Rinpoche can answer them during the retreat. He would like your questions as he writes his book on the Golden Age to ensure he answers everyone’s curiosities, doubts, and concerns.

How does the Online Retreat Work?
After you register prior to the online retreat, you will be sent an email containing all of the information to log in and follow along.
The course will be held through “Zoom“. In order to access the sessions, you need to download the Zoom App onto the device through which you want to join.
We will provide you with the Zoom link (as well as Zoom Meeting-ID and Password) created by Dzokden. You will need this link (or alternatively Zoom Meeting-ID and Password) to access the online sessions. The Zoom link (as well as Zoom Meeting-ID and Password) will be provided at the latest two days before the online event in your email as well as in the Dzokden learning center.
Access to Video Materials Afterwards
The retreat access and all the prayers will be provided for you in Dzokden’s new online learning center. We encourage everyone to connect to the live-streamed retreat in real-time, but if that is not possible, you can still log in to the learning center after the retreat and access all of the retreat content. We never post-recorded oral transmissions in the learning center. Rinpoche says that has to be received in real time when he bestows them.
Make an Offering to Khentrul Rinpoche
The retreat costs support the program fees of the organization. If anyone wishes to make an offering to Khentrul Rinpoche for the retreat, you can do so here.

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 1, 2, and 3, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.
Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of Peace and Harmony (Dzokden).
