Padmasambhava has many aspects: teacher, shaman, magician, recruiter of demons. All these roles herald profound transformation. It is well known that when Padmasambhava is called he comes. So in this retreat we will invoke Padmasambhava and through our encounter with this archetype of the awakened mind we will be encouraged to face our own demons, to walk with confidence into the cremation grounds of our lives, to stoke the fires of our own transformation and to dance with the Dakinis…

This retreat is for practitioners who are familiar with the mindfulness of breathing and the metta-bhavana and who are open to Buddhist ritual.
