Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will teach us that many of life’s problems have to do with fear and attachments. Through the Gong Chod Namsum Magyud, a part of The Mother Tantra, we will learn the practice of cutting away obstacles to peace. This ancient practice of Chod (literally, “to cut”) is a skillful method for dissolving obstacles.

Traditionally, Chod practitioners (chodpas) would practice mostly outdoors, in environments believed to harbor harmful energy from nature spirits. The chodpa would travel into the mountains, chanting with drum and bell, in order to conquer the spirits through wisdom and re-establish harmony between the natural and spiritual worlds.

In the Chod practice the fear-creating actions of the spirits are also considered a manifestation of one’s own internal fear and attachments. Thus, one can confront one’s fear and emotion indoors, seated on a meditation cushion.

This teaching/retreat will be amazing and life-changing. Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche believes this is a special teaching for students who are interested and want to learn how to manage fear and attachments to improve their daily life. Rinpoche will give a preliminary online course prior to the retreat, where students will receive the tools to make life changes.

The Retreat – The Gong Chod Namsum ~ Three Mind Essence of Magyud (Mother Tantra) will be held at Yeru Bön Center, Minneapolis, MN (originally to have been held at Joshua Tree Retreat).
