Our plan is to start on June 1st and complete works on June 9th. The goal of this karma yoga project is simple: we want to make sure that Gar is well prepared to host You in summer season. That means it's functional and pleasant to stay at.
Tara embodies the compassion, the energy and the wisdom of all realized beings. She is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas and she personifies the perfection of wisdom.
The course is open to all those who received the Dzogchen transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu as well as for those with real and deep interest and strong desire and dedication to apply this practice.
The “Dance of the Song of the Vajra” is a complex symbolic dance connected particularly to the energetic aspect of our existence. Through their sound, all the syllables of the Song of the Vajra are linked to specific energy points within our inner mandala, our body, and our outer mandala, the external dimension of the world.
The Vajra Dance is a meditation in movement. The simple, slow and fluid movements relax the body, clear the mind, and relieve the tensions of our daily life.
Through dancing we activate and coordinate specific energy points in our body according to an ancient knowledge of channels and chakras. In this way the Vajra Dance dissolves energy blocks, harmonizes the three main aspects of our being – body, energy and mind – and develops presence and awareness.
This is an open retreat, for everyone interested. In this retreat we will learn how to use suffering and happiness on the Path of Awakening, and how to turn them into the Path of Awakening, both through relative truth and through absolute truth, in the context of the Lojongs (mind trainings) of the Dzogchen Menngagdé (Series of Pith Instructions) and a teaching by Jigme Tenpai Nyima, the Third Dodrub Chen Rinpoche.
