Dream Ioga Retreat


Shakiamuni Buddha said that life is a dream and compared the manifestation of phenomena to the reflection of the moon in a lake and a rainbow in the sky: nothing exists in fact as our common perception would have us believe.

The Dream Yoga is a method that helps us investigate these profound teachings and experience them in our own lives.

This year-end, Lama Tsering will offer a Dream Yoga retreat (December 25 to January 1). This practice is part of the cycle of "Red Tara - The Essence That Fulfills All Wishes," revealed by Apong Terton.

Dispelling the illusions fabricated by the mind and eliminating habits that lead us to suffering requires diligent training - and Dream Yoga is one of the most direct and effective practices of Vajrayana Buddhism to help us in this task.

  • The Red Tara initiation is a prerequisite to attend this retreat.
  • There will be both face-to-face and online modality.
  • For those who are receiving the teachings for the first time, lodging at the Temple is required. We will give priority to hosting these practitioners.
  • It is not possible to choose the type of accommodation.
  • Participation in the full retreat is mandatory for all practitioners, even those who have done it before and will follow along online.
  • Questions can be clarified by emailing [email protected]
