A world renowned teacher of Meditation and author, Mingyur Rinpoche will teach at a few places in the UK, for the first time in 10 years during April 2018 . After completing the traditional 3 yr retreat at a very young age Rinpoche was put in charge of teaching the retreatants in Sherabling, India by Tai Situ Pa Rinpoche.
After some years Rinpoche left monastery life embarking on a wandering yogi retreat for 4 years, living in jungles and caves , begging for his food.
For anyone who is serious about meditation as a tool for transformation, this is an amazing opportunity not to be missed!
I have known Mingyur Rinpoche for many years as we both lived in Sherabling monastery at the same time. I was in retreat and Rinpoche was teaching and giving Empowerments to the 3 year retreatants. I have been very fortunate to have received teachings from Rinpoche . He transmits the profound teachings of Buddha in a way that is easily understandable in a style that is laced with humour.and light-heartedness.
Palpung Ireland is organising a group to attend the retreat being held in Palpung Wales April 22nd – 25th .” Mahamudra Aspiration Prayer” It is suitable for everyone , but especially if you are interested in finding out about the Nature of Mind, our True Nature and how to practice with a view to recognising this Nature.
“Through the light born from meditation, may the natural state shine forth as it is. ….” (from the Aspiration prayer of Mahamudra, the text for the retreat in Wales)
The places for this retreat are limited to 300. Tickets will go on sale by Eventbrite soon (no date for that yet) but I will let you know as soon as I know.
