Laughter of the Dakinis – Chod Retreat
With Pema Khandro
October 5, 2019
A day long meditation retreat focused on the practice of the Laughter of the Dakinis, a dynamic Tibetan Buddhist meditation cycle using chanting, instrumentation and visualization. This day and a half intensive will include the initiation into the practice followed by three Chod sessions and a short study of two key passages in the liturgy. This retreat is practice-focused rather than study-focused, but there will be a session to go over aspects of the text and visualization. The full practices requires more extensive study than can be done in one day, however, newcomers are welcome and will be offered instruction on the instruments in a break out group for new students.
What to Bring
This retreat will use Vajrayana instruments, so please bring chod drum and bell with you. If you don’t have one, we will have a limited supply of Chod drums for sale.
