Invoking the 100,000 Dakinis

With Pema Khandro

June 7 - 9, 2019

Dakini Mountain Retreat ~ Join Pema Khandro and the Community of Buddhist Yogis at Dakini Mountain for this auspicious occasion! 

Dakini wisdom is intrinsic wisdom, beyond concepts, beyond fear and beyond neurosis. It is the wisdom that speaks to us through nature and expresses itself as the sacred energy of the five elements. This retreat will offer the extraordinary opportunity to chant and study Invoking the 100,000 Dakinis, an inspiring Tibetan Buddhist prayer from the Dakini’s Heart Essence Cycle and the Rinchen Trengwa. Invoking the 100,000 Dakinis is a practice to raise radical courage and vivid presence. It invites protection, support and wakefulness within the mandala of the five elemental wisdoms and the meditation of Vajrayogini. The retreat begins on Friday evening, continues to Sunday afternoon into a celebration and land blessing ceremony for Dakini Mountain.

This retreat will be the first retreat at Dakini Mountain, the new retreat center we are opening with this potent practice. Dakini Mountain is our new Buddhist Retreat Center founded to promote gender equality and diversity. Ngakpa international cordially invites our friends and members to celebrate our achievement and the dawning of a new era.

The Invoking the 100,000 Dakinis retreat will be our historic inaugural gathering to celebrate the donors, friends, members, and community who supported Dakini Mountain and its vision. There is no greater way to celebrate than to practice meditation and recite the 100,000 Dakinis prayer on this sacred land under the direction of our founder, Pema Khandro Rinpoche. Dakini Mountain is a 35-acre pristine retreat center in the making.
