CHÖD RETREAT – Cutting Through Ego-Clinging

With Charlotte Rotterdam & Pieter Oosthuizen

March 2 – 5, 2017
Boulder, CO

Chöd (literally to ‘sever’ or ‘cut through’) is a thousand-year-old Tibetan Buddhist practice for meeting and engaging fears and fixations through the practice of compassion and generosity. Visualizing an offering of our own body to that which would seemingly destroy us, we practice releasing our grasp on the egoic self and opening to our inherent freedom, compassion and wisdom. The practice, sung in beautiful melodies and accompanied by a drum and bell, has its roots in shamanic traditions and was often traditionally performed as a healing practice. In this retreat, you will learn a Chöd practice written by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and explore the teachings that underlie this powerful tradition.

Please bring a Chöd drum and a bell to the retreat (recommendations on where to buy these will be given at registration).

Thursday, 6:30-8pm; Friday & Saturday, 9am-5pm; Sunday, 9am-4pm.

Please also plan to attend our Sangha meeting on Thursday, March 9, 6:30-8:30pm, during which we will have a Chod feast.

$325 (Some scholarships available)

Thursday evening in north Boulder; Friday-Sunday at location just south of Lyons.
