Rinpoche has chosen to teach us, at this retreat in Costa Rica:

The Essence of the Khadros

A profound series on the signs, meanings, and healings of powerful female lineage holders in the Bön tradition. This teaching, rarely taught, provides instructions on Bonpo Dzogchen. This multi-year teaching will introduce you to the Khadros, explaining their importance to Bon, their essence, wisdom, and healing powers to illuminate our spiritual path.

Every student attending in person will receive a collection of images of each Khadro to take home.

We are excited to have Rinpoche introduce us to Yungdrung Bon’s most amazing Bon Khadros, opening the door wider to receive these teachings for our spiritual path. Their wisdom, healing, and their signs and meanings as lineage holders of Bon will be shared in depth.

These next two or three years promise to be a very unique and powerful experiential teaching to fill us with the essence of Bon.

If your heart is open, filled with trust and warm-heartedness, and ready to receive these profound Bön teachings, we invite you to join us for a multi-year teaching experience in Costa Rica, with the first year being January 5th to 13th, 2025.


The retreat will be held at Amor De Mar in Montezuma Costa Rica, owned by a Bon practitioners and board member of Yeru Costa Rica.

Amor De Mar holds the exquisite energy of all the natural elements, the spectacular sunrises, the beauty of the ocean and the jungle, and a special energy.

Mixing the beauty and energy of this place with the teaching of Rinpoche’s is the perfect blend for our physical well-being and spiritual path.

Our Costa Rica retreats sell out fast. If you would like to stay inside the Amor De Mar hotel, we advise you to register early. If the rooms are sold out, we have other hotel options within walking distance. If you are staying in an offsite hotel, no worries, you will be spending most of your time at the Amor De Mar hotel for the Dzogchen teaching, eating, relaxing. If you are not able to stay at Amor De Mar, and are staying at another location, you can hang out at Amor De Mar all day. Most students just sleep, shower and change at the other hotels.
