The precious treasure of the Kagyu lineage, the sadhana of the yidam Vajrayogini, holds powerful transmissions for immediate transformation of our lives. Emotional and conceptual obscurations are burned in her fiery wisdom, and her unblinking gaze awakens our greatest capacities for limitless awareness. Special attention will be placed on co-emergent Mahamudra within the practice. This sadhana intensive, appropriate for all levels of Vajrayogini practitioners, is a celebration of the heart of our Vajrayana community and culture.

Prerequisite: Vajrayogini Abhisheka

Here is an excerpt from a participant of a Chakrasamvara Drupchen led by Acharya Larry Mermelstein.
” On a few evenings he offered teachings and stories from lineage gurus who had clearly known just what might come in handy for a future a practitioner-like me. Plus, practicing the Chakrasamvara mandala of compassion added an unexpected depth and balance to my understanding of the Shambhala path-the sanity of compassionate society. Larry is a wonderful teacher!”
