POSTPONED Bardo Weekend Retreat

Postponed BARDO WEEKEND RETREAT

Lhoppon Rinpoche will be training people according to the Bardo Thodrol Tradition. Rinpoche received from his own beloved Gurus direct teachings & firsthand experience in this tradition.

People who have taken this training will better understand the true meaning of their practice. They will become more organized about their meditation & practice. They will be in a position to better provide assistance for their family and friends. The Bardo Thodrol says, "Even some good practitioners can get confused in the Bardo if they are not familiar with Bardo training".
