Yeshe Tsogyal: The Inseparable Union of Feminine and Masculine Principles

con Acharya Melissa Moore

February 29 - March 7, 2020

Yeshe Tsogyal is said to embody Great Equality; the capacity to open to both Samsara and Nirvana equally. This non-biased manifestation is of the essence of the feminine principle which cannot be explored separately from the masculine principle. These two divine principles are alive in all of us. Yeshe Tsogyal provides us an ancestral example of wisdom realization and protection for all who faithfully follow the Buddhist path. As a devoted disciple of Guru Padmasambhava, she became the instigator and protector of on-going traditions of realization of ancient yogic practices in Tibet. This week-long practice intensive will evoke and celebrate the life and teachings of Yeshe Tsogyal.

PREREQUISITE: This program is open to all students and practitioners who have completed Rigden Weekend in the Shambhala Path.
