New 3 Doors Academy Begins in Person at Serenity Ridge in October

The sixth 3 Doors North American Academy will begin in October 2021 in person at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center in Shipman, Virginia. The program includes six group retreats at Serenity Ridge, with online practice and mentoring sessions in between, via Zoom. The Academy will be taught by 3 Doors senior teachers Marcy Vaughn and Gabriel Rocco.

Using meditation, including various breath, body and sound practices, this intensive 3 Doors training will provide participants with the opportunity to engage deeply in the process of self-discovery. It is rigorous in the sense that you are asked to make an active, ongoing commitment to self-reflection and meditation. It is challenging at times, since facing yourself can be humbling and disorienting. And it is frequently joyful, as the freedom of going beyond perceived limitations and experiencing the abundant resources of your true nature can be liberating.

Another strength of the program is that it draws upon the collective power of the group for support in transforming personal limitations. Sharing this two-and-a-half-year journey together, a cohort of students will attend six in-person residential retreats at Serenity Ridge in Virginia, US, which will be supplemented by online meetings with instructors and mentors, and draw on the mentor relationship for individual guidance and direction. The Academy environment is one of complete confidentiality, support and genuine warmth.

The end date of the program is currently being finalized.

The 3 Doors was founded by Tibetan teacher and meditation master Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and is an international organization that offers meditation programs with practical applications for everyday life.

Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

In the Tibetan tradition, body, speech and mind are known as the three doors to enlightenment, for they are the only tools we have for progressing on the spiritual path. Through these doors we either exit and become separated from our true nature, or we enter into the fullness of being, realizing and manifesting our capacities in this life for the benefit of others.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is launching a yearlong online program related to these three doors.

We are living in a time of such great uncertainty, challenge and transformation. Isolation and loss in the face of Covid-19, separation across political and social justice issues, and the biodiversity crisis can seem overwhelming. How fortunate that the teachings of enlightened beings and realized masters of the Yungdrung Bön tradition are available to us!
