Description

Pristine Mind Meditation: Awakening the Enlightenment Within You

Dates: September 13 - 15


Heart of the Dharma is pleased to bring renowned meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche to Boise for an in-depth retreat based on his book Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness.

Right now, we can feel and experience anger, stress, and other uncomfortable states of mind. But we don’t experience the pristine natural state of mind that lies within us. During this weekend retreat, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will teach us how we can feel not only our thoughts but can actually experience our Pristine Mind in every moment.

Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will provide precise, experiential instructions and guided meditations, in English, drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings making the life-transforming realization of the pristine nature of mind attainable for all. These teachings are deeply relevant whether we are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.

Everyone is welcome to attend this special program. These teachings will benefit the beginner and advanced student and are suitable for anyone interested in meeting with the buddhadharma.
