Teachings and practices of four important Tibetan Yoginis

This weekend retreat offers an introduction to the teachings and practices of four important Tibetan Yoginis (Yeshé Tsogyel, Ma-gÇig Labdrön, Jomo Menmo, and Khyungchen Aro Lingma).
Ngak’chang Rinpoche draws the central themes of the inner Tantras from the lives of these realised women and their luminous visionary descendants. He will also give the empowerments for Yeshé Tsogyel, Ma-gÇig Labdrön, and Aro Lingma. The human style of the Aro gTér is essentially female – whether taught by women or men.

The non-institutional situations in which this lineage arose—and in which they have always been passed on—provides and provokes an ambience of both subtle and profoundly whimsical communication. The teachings are practical and highly applicable, yet they are tremendously profound – being purveyed as interpenetrating layers that each person understands according to their needs and previous experience.

Taking every day life as the basis of practice  

“The gTérmas of Aro Lingma explode the banality of commonplace existence, through taking every day life as the basis of practice. Vajrayana is often seen as something apart from life – but the essential meaning of Vajrayana lies within every aspect of existence. If this knowledge cannot be found in the market place – it is unlikely to be found in a monastery.”
