Virtual Ngondro Retreat “Meditation and the Development of Faith”

Sam Bercholz, April 4-5
Lama Sonam Rinpoche, April 6-12

Please join the sangha for the annual Ngondro Retreat, which we will host this year by live streaming.

This weekend, April 4th & 5th, Sam Bercholz, senior student of many of the Nyingma, Kagyu and Sakya lineage holders, including root lamas Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, will teach on “Meditation and the Development of Faith: Essential Teachings” extrapolating from two texts The Play of Thought by H.H. Kyabje Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje Rinpoche and A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar – a true masterpiece by Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.

Sam has said, “The Play of Thoughts” by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche is one of the best teachings you can study to help stabilize your mind”.

With his unusual wit and depth of understanding, Sam will weave in teachings and lead practice on Shinay (calm abiding) and Lhakthong (penetrating insight) meditation, and answer individual questions. 

Sam is also giving participants the opportunity
for a personal interview by Facetime or Zoom
for up to one week after the teachings.

Teachings will continue April 6-12 with Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche teaching on “How Ngondro Can Support You in This Difficult Time”

You may watch in real time or view video recordings, which will be available for at least one month for your convenience. We will try to make it possible for everyone who wants to join these sessions to do so.

With the love and support of your Pema Osel Ling sangha,
Becky Loy and Nancy Menzies
