Eifel Retreat, October 2019

October 19 @ 10:00 am - October 27 @ 1:00 pm
Kamalashila Institute, Mayen-Koblenz Kirchstraße 22
Langenfeld, 56729 Germany

The Happy Twins. Dzogchen and Mahamudra are harmoniously complementary. Their evocative styles offer us beautiful metaphors which can sweetly and poetically ease us out of our rigid concepts. We will focus on two texts, the Mirror of Luminous Revelation, a dzogchen treasure text from Nuden Dorje Drophen Lingpa Drolo Tsal, and The Mahamudra Upadesha by Tilopa. New translations of the texts will be available. There will be plenty of time for practice. Further information from the organisers.
