Vajrayogini Retreat

*Must have HYT empowerment

Those with highest yoga tantra empowerments* are invited to engage in a Vajrayogini retreat where, over the course of 2 days, we will explore in great detail the profound power of the practice of Buddha Vajrayogini. In each session Gen Tenzin will give commentary on an aspect of Vajrayogini practice and we will engage in the practice of Dakini Yoga as a group. This retreat is a wonderful way to gain familiarity and understanding of the essence of Vajrayogini Tantra and to strengthen and deepen your personal tantric practice.

*Before engaging in tantric practice, it is necessary to receive empowerment and instructions from a qualified spiritual guide. These empowerments are given every other year at International Kadampa Festivals and occasionally at other events.

Attending In-Person

Vajrayogini Retreat is hosted in-person from Mahakaruna Kadampa Buddhist Center in Petaluma. Please pre-register if you wish to attend in-person as space is limited.
