In the pristine, high desert of Arizona, we will go into a 10-day retreat exploration of our mental mind fields. In this study that will show us how to Search & Destroy, we’ll continue with the famous Gift of Liberation, an outline of the entire steps to enlightenment by Pabongka Rinpoche (1878-1941). We’ll be studying where Rinpoche identifies the 10 major mental bombs that can make our life unhappy, and teaches us how to destroy them. We will investigate the deeper meanings of his writings, and how to apply his understanding of reality to our daily lives.
Additionally, over the next five years, we’ll be devoting an entire retreat at Diamond Mountain to learning and meditating on The Wisdom of Arya Nagarjuna. This is the great Mother-Book of all emptiness teachings. In each of the retreats between these teachings, we’ll be doing special “Stay-In-Touch Sessions” devoted to the emptiness instructions of this great master. At this session, we’ll be exploring the idea that empty things still work—and how we can use this to create a beautiful life for ourselves and our loved ones.
