Saturday, June 10 from 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Sunday, June 11 from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


During this rare weekend retreat, Sogyal Rinpoche will teach on understanding the mind and the wisdom of meditation following in the spirit of the extraordinary teachings of Dzogchen—the Great Perfection, which is the highest wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition.

Rinpoche is known for his spontaneous, dynamic and intimate teaching style, and for his ability to create an atmosphere which naturally inspires our inner wisdom. His unaltered simplicity and playful, vibrant wakefulness can leave you seeing your mind and the world from a completely fresh perspective.

Many people, from all walks of life, have found Rinpoche’s teachings to be immediately and directly relevant to their experience. Time and again, they have expressed the profound and lasting impact this wisdom has had on their minds, and how it has transformed their lives.

By integrating the wisdom of these teachings fully into our daily life, our inherent awareness, wakefulness, wisdom, love, and compassion begin to radiate out to everything we do and to everyone we encounter. We become truly alive—confident, open and at ease in any situation.

Online Registration will close at 7:00pm EST on Friday, June 9th. After this time, please register on site at the event. Thank you!
