During 2016, Lhoppön Rinpoche worked to prepare a unique 2017 Curriculum* for his students.  These Retreats are part of that curriculum.  Although the Retreats are open to everyone, Rinpoche has created these Retreats specifically for his student practitioners.

 

The Open Heart Retreats are Rinpoche’s invitation to his students to enter the “Monastery of Mipham Shedra” through the doorway of the Vow.  The taking of vows is the invisible boundary that contains us and connects and opens the heart of each student devotee to the Guru.  These Retreats, therefore, are dedicated to the devoted practitioner.   Each practitioner will be asked to strengthen his or her vows and, by so doing, will enter the “Monastery of Modern Times”.

 

Be prepared. These will be demanding and challenging Retreats.  Following the Retreats, each practitioner will be asked to take a temporary Vow.  These Vows will involve a commitment to daily meditation.

*To best prepare for the 2017 Curriculum/Retreats,

becoming a member of Mipham Shedra and taking

Guru-Disciple Vows is strongly encouraged.
