16th February – 10th March
with Venerable Thubten Wangchuk
FOR SOLITARY HERO YAMANTAKA INITIATES ONLY
Following the very successful Yamantaka nearing retreat led by Ven Wangchuk at Land of Joy in 2017, he has kindly agreed to return to lead a second retreat in 2018. Those who complete the mantra count will perform a burnt offering at the end of the retreat within Land of Joy’s grounds. Following this, Ven Wangchuk will explain how to practise the self-initiation of the Solitary Hero Yamantaka practice, allowing participants to leave the retreat with knowledge of how to practise self-initiation at home.
The retreat will comprise four sessions of the sadhana each day, complemented by a daily instruction session through which the whole practice will be gradually taught.
Ven Wangchuk has studied with many great masters of this and the previous generation, as well as having studied many commentaries. His teachings on the practice are clear and reliable. He is also a certified teacher in the Tibetan yogas known as ‘lu-jong’ offering a session of this each day to help maintain a supple and serviceable body to maximise the benefits of the meditations.
This retreat is open to anyone who has received the Solitary Hero Yamantaka initiation.
