Two-day meditation teachings with Tibetan lama Ngakpa Kalzang Dorje. Meditation is used to explore and gain insight into mental qualities. Through learning and practice, these qualities can become consciously engaged in our daily lives.
In the Tibetan tradition, a Ngakpa is a non-monastic tantric master or mystic yogi and Ngakpa Kalzang belongs to a rare lineage of this tradition. He is the Spiritual Teacher at Thubten Choling, a non-sectarian Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Duncan on Vancouver Island.
Space is very limited so preregistration is required.
This two-day retreat will be offered on a donation basis. Suggested amounts: $120 - $150.
