It is possible to participate in the weekend only.
The Sipé Gyalmo practice will be done after the weekend.
Sherap Chamma: Mother of Loving Wisdom
In many cultures the primordial female energy is seen as the origin of existence and the source of all positive qualities. As such, Sherap Chamma, Mother of Wisdom and Love, is the source of wisdom, and her medicine is love and compassion. The teachings of Sherap Chamma comprise one of the most important tantric cycles of the ancient Bön tradition. In this retreat, participants will learn a beautiful and simple meditation practice composed by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche to enable all to directly connect with the sacred feminine. Within the support of the group, we create an environment to promote profound healing of the physical, energetic/emotional, and spiritual dimensions of your life. With visualization, the sound of mantra, and deep contemplation, we make a personal connection to the universal mother, Sherap Chamma, and are guided through this connection to our innate wisdom and the love and compassion that naturally radiate from that wisdom. Those experienced in meditation as well as those who are beginning are warmly welcomed.
Sipé Gyalmo: Chief Protector of the Bön Tradition
The Healing Practice of Sidpai Gyalmo includes a healing ritual that concentrates on the compassion of the fully enlightened protector of Bon, Yeshe Walmo, the principal emanation of Sidpai Gyalmo. The stream of transmission of this energetic healing practice originated with Yeshe Walmo herself. It was transmitted from master to master and eventually to Yongdzin Rinpoche in Northern Tibet, and from him to Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. The healing waters produced during the meditation are considered to be a powerful remedy for the physical illnesses arising in modern times.
