Khamtrul Rinpoche

Meditation instructions on A Record of Mahamudra Instructions by Pema Karpo
Friday 25 October, 8pm to Monday 28 October, 1pm

Gyalwa Dokhampa Shedrub Nyima, the 9th Khamtrul Rinpoche (b. 1982), is an outstanding teacher of the younger generation of masters from the Drukpa Kagyü tradition. He will teach on the profound meditation instructions of Mahamudra by using a short text by Pema Karpo, the 4th Gyalwang Drukpa, entitled A Record of Mahamudra Instructions. Mahamudra is a simple, direct method for looking beyond our conceptual dualistic fixation to the unchanging, luminous nature of our minds.


The retreat will be held in our clifftop shrine room, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular ocean views.


Delicious two course vegetarian lunches, with soup and bread in the evenings. Cooked with love at Dzogchen Beara, using homegrown and organic ingredients whenever possible. Tea and coffee.
