Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s teaching of

The Practice of Tum Mo
of the Dzogchen Kusum Rangshar

The Self-Arising of The Three Enlightened Bodies


March 12 – 17, 2024

The Kusum Rangshar, or “Self-Arising of the Three Enlightened Bodies,” is one of the most important Dzogchen practices within the Bon tradition.
Tum Mo is a Dzogchen practice which develops our natural feminine wisdom energy that is within you.

We just completed part 4 of Latri Rinpoche’s teaching of “The Practice of Tum Mo” Dzogchen Kusum Rangshare. A couple of weeks ago.

This last teaching was wonderful and intense. Putting all of the pieces of this practice together, understanding how to sit, visualizations and more.
For some it was difficult to follow on Zoom.

Rinpoche strongly believes this practice is very important and should be done correctly. He feels if we do this practice incorrectly, it would not be good. He would like to be sure the students fully understand the foundations underlying in the Tum Mo practice.

So, as he said during the teaching. He would like to change his schedule and schedule a weeklong “Practice of Tum Mo” This retreat will include all of what we learned in Part 1, 2, 3 and 4.

You will be asked to review all of the videos and come to the retreat center and work with him on the Tum Mo practices. When we complete the week, we will be strong, positive and productive Tum Mo practitioners.

Remember, the practice of Tum Mo is not just about producing heat, but a complex energy practice that focuses on much more than simple production of heat. Tum Mo practice can ultimately free us from suffering, all negative karmas, and from cyclic suffering. Very powerful indeed.

He will be able to work closely with the students, help and guide them to be sure they understand this powerful practice.

Rinpoche and Nick have already begun putting the entire practice manual together to be used during this practice week.

We understand how important Zoom is for many students, but he feels this retreat needs to be in person. NO ZOOM.

Yes, students who have studied Tum Mo, and took this practice with another Master are welcome to come to this retreat.
