The Natural Freedom of Mind

Tarragona, Thursday  15 to Sunday 18 October, 2015

Dear Rigpa Students,  It gives us great pleasure to share with you the  registration information for the Spanish Retreat with Sogyal Rinpoche in Tarragona.

 

Teachings With Sogyal Rinpoche
Autumn 2015

Sogyal Rinpoche will teach on understanding the mind and the wisdom of meditation following in the spirit of the extraordinary teachings of Dzogchen—the Great Perfection, which is the highest wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition.

World-renowned Buddhist teacher from Tibet and author of the highly acclaimed The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. With his remarkable gift for presenting the essence of Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is both authentic and profoundly relevant to the modern mind, Sogyal Rinpoche is one of the most renowned teachers of our time.

The atmosphere Rinpoche creates is one of incredible warmth, love, and penetrating insight, as if he were speaking directly to the heart of each and everyone present.

He is often called an incredible communicator, and people around the world remark on the power his teachings have to reveal a glimpse of the innermost nature of mind and bring lasting transformation and confidence in how to face the challenges of daily life.
