How to Discover our True Nature

Retreat with Venerable Robina

5-14 August 2022

Mahamudra Ven Robina (2).png

According to Buddha’s amazing view about the human mind, we all have so much potential. The very word “buddha” in Sanskrit – expresses this potential. “Bud” implies the total eradication from our mind of all ego, all fears, attachment, anger, jealousy and other states of mind that cause us so much pain. “Dha” implies the development to perfection of all the goodness within us: love, compassion, wisdom, confidence.

About the Retreat

Lama Yeshe explains so clearly, so simply, how to get in touch with that natural potential through meditation on the mind itself, the unique characteristic of mahamudra meditation.

As Lama says, “In Mahamudra meditation there is no doctrine, no theology, no philosophy, no God, no Buddha. We go beyond name, beyond shape and color, beyond the relative, beyond self-image, beyond compassion.”

Venerable Robina Courtin, a close disciple of Lama Yeshe, edited his book: Mahamudra: How to Develop Our True Nature. Join us for 10 days of retreat on Mahamudra guided by the incredible Venerable Robina.  A once in a lifetime experience.

It will be possible to join this retreat both online and IN PERSON! We have limited numbers available to join this retreat in person. 

The retreat will start on the Saturday morning , so participants are requested to arrive and complete check in on Friday. The retreat will conclude after lunch on the Sunday (usually around 2pm). Guests are most welcome to stay extra days before and after the retreat.
