Mahamudra Retreat – A Blissful Journey

In this special weekend meditation retreat with Kadam Adam – at Tara KMC, Templeogue, Dublin – we will explore how to come to experience the pure and blissful essential nature of our own mind, the clear light mind of bliss, and through this come to know how we can transform our life, through transforming our mind.

This time honored lineage of Mahamudra meditation (the completion stage meditations of Highest Yoga Tantra) not only introduces us to the true nature and potential of our mind, it also leads us to the experience of profound freedom to change our lives at the deepest level, through discovering the true nature of reality, that Buddha called emptiness.

Through these set of completion stage meditations, we can discover how to realise our highest spiritual potential for the supreme and lasting peace, happiness and freedom of enlightenment, and thereby one day be able to help others do the same.

The retreat will be based on the time honored Kadampa lineage of Mahamudra meditation explained in the book ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra’ by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

This retreat is open to those who have a Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment of Heruka and Vajrayogini or those who have a sincere wish to receive this empowerment soon.

Each session will include a talk and guided meditation (including Buddhist prayers, to help us prepare for Mahamudra meditation) and there will also be time for Q&A over the weekend. You can attend on a session by session basis or attend the full weekend to get maximum benefit from the retreat.
