The Friday evening introduction will help us set an intention for retreat so we can rejoice in our good fortune and meditate with a light, relaxed mind.

Attaining Complete Purity* (Part II*)
(*Only for those with HYT empowerment)
Sunday, August 19
$20 or $10/session
When we completely purify our mind through Tantric practice, our world, our self, our enjoyments and our activities also become completely pure – this is the state of enlightenment. Attaining enlightenment is therefore very simple; all we need to do is apply effort to purifying our mind through training in Highest Yoga Tantra.
Each session includes a short teaching and a guided meditation.
Session One: 2:30 – 3:45pm
Session Two: 4:15 – 5:30pm
