The Joy of Spontaneous Presence

with Lama Daniela and Lama Christopher

Join us for this special one-day retreat online, where we will explore meditation as a journey of awakening to our true nature, our inmost goodness and innate freedom of being.  Lama Daniela & Lama Christopher will offer Nature of Mind teachings & guided meditations drawn from the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Living in the light of Awareness illuminates our best and altruistic qualities, allowing us to expand beyond our conceptual limitations, shining into life -- and into the world -- with a wakefulness full of love and wisdom.  

The day will be filled with user-friendly teachings, guided meditations and lively Q&A sessions with the Lamas. This event is appropriate for spiritual exploration at any level of experience.

Lama Daniela and Lama Christopher are both Lineage Holders in the Dzogchen (Natural Great Fulfillment) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

For twenty years, they have each practiced and studied intensively under the guidance of their root teacher, Lama Surya Das, as well as other accomplished masters, Himalayan and Western. Besides completing numerous extended silent meditation retreats, they have been teaching for more than ten years and were ordained as Lamas in 2015 in the lineage of Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche. In addition to their commitment to the authentic and accessible transmission of these timeless wisdom teachings both locally and nationally, they are also both joyful parents and have each enjoyed life-long professional careers.

Registration fee for the one day retreat:
$75 (for members of Dzogchen West), $95 (for non-members) or $35 (for full-time students with valid ID).

Traditionally it is said that the value of these teachings is beyond measure. It is optional to make an additional, tax-deductible offering of Dana (generosity), in support of the Lamas, the lineage and the teachings.

Please reserve your space by registering online as soon as possible:
