    Happy Dakini Day Samye Sangha!

    During the third Tibetan lunar month (April 30 – May 30), Samye Institute invites you to take part in a home mini-retreat. Due to the disruptions of the pandemic, this format eliminates issues that make attending in-person retreats difficult. You can choose your own dates within the one month period. You can do this retreat at home, or in your own chosen location, and you set your own schedule.

    This format asks you to commit to doing two consecutive days of practice with four sessions per day. We advise you to choose a session length that is appropriate for your own practice experience. Phakchok Rinpoche often advises us to be gentle but disciplined. It is more important to keep to your selected schedule than to try to push yourself too hard. But a retreat should also allow us to develop personal experience with longer practice periods, so aim for a balanced approach.

    If you would like to learn more about setting up a mini-retreat, please take a look at this Wisdom Blog post. You can submit the hours you intend to spend in solo meditation there, so we can all practice together and rejoice in the merit of each other’s practice!

    Also, Drupla Sonam Tsering has recorded an extensive teaching on how to plan your personal retreat. You can access his teaching here.

    Thank you!
