Cittamani Tara Retreat with Venerable Yonten
Chenrezig Institute is pleased to offer a two-week long Cittamani Tara Retreat starting Sunday 5 March and finishing Sunday 18 March 2018. All students who have received the Cittamani Tara initiation are welcome to attend. This is the highest yoga tantra form of Tara – a Green Tara jenang is not sufficient for this retreat.
To complement the practice there will be some discussion time about the practice during the first week. The retreat will conclude with a ritual fire puja and will fulfill the Approach Retreat Commitment (lerung) enabling students to then participate in self-initiation practice.
This is a fulltime residential retreat and there is a strict course discipline with students required to attend every session and stay on the property until the completion of the retreat and fire puja. Precepts for the retreat will be optional.
The retreat will be led by experienced teacher and retreat leader Ven. Yonten who was ordained and studied for many years at Chenrezig Institute in 2003 and became a fully ordained Bhikshuni (Gelongma) in 2011. In 2012 Venerable Yönten completed the studies and examination to become a Registered In-Depth Teacher with FPMT.
Venerable Yönten is known for her fresh, modern approach and warm, engaging teaching style as well as her depth of knowledge and understanding.
Sunday 5th March and finishing Sunday 18th March 2018.
