Four Day Urban Retreat with Dr Nida Chenagtsang:
Ati Yoga (Tib: Dzogchen), literally meaning the ‘utmost yoga,’ is the pinnacle of Buddhist Vajrayana practice. It is the most simple, direct, and profound path to reveal the primordial wisdom which is one’s basic nature. In this four day practice-centered urban retreat, Dr Nida Chenagtsang offers Ati Yoga instruction according to Tibet’s great 12th century physician and meditation adept Yuthok Yönten Gönpo’s teachings entitled The Great Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana of the Great Perfection of Yuthok. This year’s program focuses on Ati Yoga preliminary practices and trekchöd, ‘cutting through hardness’.
In order to attend this retreat, it is necessary to have completed a seven day Yuthok Nyingthig ngöndro retreat or ngöndro in another lineage.
Space is limited, pre-registration is required: www.sorigkhangportland.org
Teachings will be based on Dr Nida’s book ‘Mirror of Light: A Commentary on Yuthok’s Ati Yoga’ and the upcoming ‘Weapon of Light: Introduction to Ati Yoga Meditation’ available from www.skypressbooks.com
