Mahamudra Retreat

December 26-31, 2023

with Scott Wellenbach

This six day retreat is a rare opportunity to practice the profound teachings and pith practice instructions of mahamudra shamatha and vipashyana as they are presented in The Ocean of Definitive Meaning by the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje.

We will be guided by Scott Wellenbach, who has studied and practiced mahamudra under the guidance of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Continuing on from previous Holiday Mahamudra Retreats (2015-2022), we will review and practice teachings on mahamudra shamatha during the first few days of the retreat, and then go on to explore the vipashyana investigations.

Halifax Shambhala Centre – Main Shrine Room Tuesday, December 26 – Sunday, December 31,  9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

$125.00, Generosity policy on request.
