His Holiness’ Visit and Serenity Ridge’s Summer Retreat

Ligmincha International, Serenity Ridge

We are honored to welcome His Holiness, the 34th Gyalwa Menri Trizin Rinpoche, spiritual head of the Bön tradition, back to Serenity Ridge. He will be with us for the full two weeks of our summer retreat, June 24 – July 8 2023.

Registration is now open, and you can join for one or both weeks in person or online.

  • Week 1: June 24 – July 1
  • Week 2: July 2 – July 8

His Holiness was last at Serenity Ridge for the 2019 Summer Retreat while on his worldwide tour after being enthroned in early 2018. This summer, he will be with us for the full two weeks of the summer retreat. His Holiness and Rinpoche will teach separately each day on different topics.

Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach Tummo, Inner Fire of Realization, Part 3, third in a four part series. Tummo refers to inner heat, and its teachings are designed to burn away subtle obscurations and cultivate bliss. Rinpoche will teach from the text Ku Sum Rang Shar (Spontaneous Arising of the Three Kayas), written by Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen Rinpoche, a Bon master who attained the body of light (rainbow body) in 1934.

His Holiness will teach from the Twenty-Four Masters, and will give the oral transmissions (lung) of the chapters from the Bon Mother Tantra on Dream Yoga, Elements, Chod, Powa, Bardo and Sleep Yoga. In addition, His Holiness also will offer the Sherap Chamma initiation (wang) on Saturday, July 1.

You may attend one or both weeks of the retreat. New students are welcome to attend, and the retreat is open to everyone. If only able to join for one week, Rinpoche advises those new to these teachings to come to week one.

We hope you can join us!
