The Healing Mysteries of Sidpa Gyalmo

August 25th – 30th, 2019

Summer Retreat
Yeru Retreat Center

Yeru Bön Center is pleased to delve deeper into the practice of Sidpa Gyalmo. This powerful protector has beautiful sacred secrets to share with us as we take her practice to the next level.

Sidpa Gyalmo has multiple aspects. She appears as wrathful and as a powerful protector, but she is also the manifestation of the peaceful Goddess, Sherab Chamma, the great wisdom loving mother, the mother of all enlightened ones and the source of all love and compassion.

Sidpa Gyalmo is also a manifestation of the wisdom aspect of Yeshe Walmo, the preserver and protector of the Yungdrung Bön wisdom. Yeshe Walmo keeps all Bön texts and sacred items safe and only allows these objects to be found when times are right.

Last year we discovered Sidpa Gyalmo’s healing water and how to nurture ourselves through Yeshe Walmo’s wisdom. Many used this healing water to heal before and after surgery, dealing with stress, fatigue and more.

This Summer, Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will take us deeper into the knowledge of Sidpa Gyalmo’s healing practice, in order to clear both physical illnesses and disturbances in our mind and feeling.

During this teaching, you will feel Sidpa Gyalmo’s ability to protect and heal, as well as her guidance and wisdom. There will be several practices introduced to you including the blessing healing water ceremony as well.

You will leave this retreat with the tools to help you with your personal practice and transformation. You will be able to tap into your innate ability to heal. You will be able to help your clients and patients as physicians and healers. This retreat will include initiation of Sidpa Gyalmo.

Sidpa Gyalmo is mysterious and powerful. Through this retreat, you will discover her ability to heal, protect, promote guidance and wisdom. She will resonate with you in time of need.

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche is a dynamic teacher and has always added surprises and real practices within his teachings. This retreat will be no different. You will learn so much more then just the sacred teachings of Sidpa Gyalmo. This retreat will have you thinking, “Wow. I had no idea and how amazing this was…”

Your Bön practice will be so much stronger and richer then before you arrived.

This retreat will be held at the Yeru Retreat Center, located in Emily MN. Peaceful, healing, energizing and the perfect background for this retreat. Two and a half hours by car from Minneapolis. You can fly into Minneapolis airport, rent a car or sign up for a Yeru Shuttle.
