The Essential Daily Practice of Completion Stage: A retreat for Training in Completion Stage with Heart Jewel prayers

February 16, in four sessions

At the Dharma House

The practice of Tantra has two stages: generation stage and completion stage. Generation stage is said to be like drawing the outline for a painting and completion stage is like filling in the details. When we have learned how to generate our self as the deity we can then meditate on the details provided in completion stage practices. These meditations require daily practice for us to accomplish meaningful results.

Through the kindness of Je Tsongkhapa’s Tradition we are able to engage in completion stage meditations in our daily practice. During this one day retreat (held at the Dharma House) we will have the chance to more deeply explore the completion stage practices of Mahamudra Tantra that we can incorporate into our Heart Jewel practice.

There will be 4 sessions with Heart Jewel prayers:
8 – 10am (meditation and teachings)
11 – 1pm (meditation and teachings)
4 – 6pm (meditation and teachings)
7:30 – 9pm (WFJ with tsog offerings and meditation)

Each session includes time for meditation (3 of them guided) and there will be three 1-hour long teachings. The day will end with the fourth session being a tsog offering, but with time left for meditation.
The cost is $30.

We will provide morning snacks, lunch and dinner.

This retreat is open for those who received the appropriate empowerments.
