Several 3 Doors in-person retreats previously scheduled at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center this fall have been canceled due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic. The new 6th North American Academy, however, will begin online via Zoom October 7–12, 2021.
At this point, Serenity Ridge is expected to open in December for Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche’s winter retreat, “The Experiential Transmission of Zhang Zhung, Part 2.” Rinpoche’s fall retreat sponsored by Serenity Ridge, “Living in Joy, Dying in Peace,” will be held online via Zoom October 13–17.
Registration is still open for the new 3 Doors 6th North American Academy. The intensive two-and-a-half-year program, founded by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche more than 10 years ago, will be taught by senior teachers Marcy Vaughn and Gabriel Rocco. It includes six group retreats. Although the first retreat will be held online via Zoom, future retreats are expected to be held at Serenity Ridge beginning in April 2021.
The 3 Doors Academy offers participants an opportunity to engage deeply in meditation and the process of self-discovery through exploring practices of body, speech and mind. Between the six-day retreats, online practice and mentoring sessions are held, along with individual work.
