Summer Course Week 1: Initiation of Tara Who Liberates from all Fears & teachings from “Patterns in Emptiness”

Sunday 18th – Friday 23rd August 2019

In the first week of this summer’s course Lama Jampa will teach from his forthcoming work ‘Patterns in Emptiness: understanding dependent origination’. As His Holiness Karmapa says in His forward, ‘This is the heart of the Buddha’s teachings.’ In this course Lama Jampa will show how it is to be approached in all three vehicles. Alongside this teaching Lama Jampa will bestow the initiation of ‘Tara Who Liberates from all Fears’ and lead daily sessions of her meditation.

Week 2: Direct Transmission of Chenrezik Meditation according to Tsembupa

Sunday 25th – Friday 30th August 2019

The second week provides an extremely rare opportunity to receive the system of meditation of Chenrezik from the lineage of the Tibetan siddha Tsembupa.  Tsembupa was an 11th century master who obtained this teaching directly from the goddess Vajrayogini. Accompanying the transmission Lama Jampa will bestow the initiations of Chenrezik and Vajrasattva, the transmission of Phowa and instructions on the bardo.
