The Diamond Path of Wisdom: A Vajrayana Reading and Study Group on the Teachings of Guru Rinpoche

Ron Thomas
October 12, 2022 - December 21, 2022

Every other Wednesday* beginning Oct. 12 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET

Join us this fall for a reading/study group on the teachings of Padmasambhava. Also known as Guru Rinpoche, he is often considered the “second Buddha” and a founder of the Vajrayana path. We will be exploring further the treasure teachings that were the basis of the past two annual Vajrayana retreats: Dakini Teachings and Advice from the Lotus Born. If you attended either retreat, this is an opportunity for a deeper dive into the glories of these termas. If you did not attend, this is your chance to encounter these profound and eminently practical teachings for the first time.

The reading/study group will be facilitated by Ron Thomas.

This retreat is restricted to current Natural Dharma Fellowship practitioners who are on the Vajrayana and Dzogchen tracks.

Reading/Study Group Sessions will be held via Zoom on Wednesdays* from 5:00-6:00pm on the following days:

  • October 12
  • October 26
  • November 8 (Tuesday this week instead of Wednesday)*
  • November 23
  • December 7
  • December 21
