This Guru Yoga, the focus of our retreat, is Jigme Lingpa's own text, which crowns the Foundational Practice Ngondro, revealed by him. In this teaching, he takes the opportunity to refresh our appreciation of lineage, details the steps of initiation relevant to the entire path, and augurs the sacred and unique Dzogchen paths for which these practices provide the foundation. 

This retreat is open to everyone. At the same time, whatever other practices you might already have in connection with Guru Rinpoche, Jigme Lingpa's work can enrich them, including those of you already familiar with Ad.zom Rinpoche's Becoming Guru Rinpoche practice taught last year.
