This retreat is open only to those who have received the Dzogchen Transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu or Yeshi Silvano Namkhai. We will explore how our relative condition is connected to our absolute nature using quotations from various sources including Santi Maha Sangha Base book. It is not enough to just establish this connection in theory. Using various methods Rinpoche taught, we will try to get some experiential idea of the seamless quality of our chaotic changing temperament and its Buddha nature.
