Join us in Italy for a transformational week of practice, meditation, and philosophy study, as we immerse ourselves in the meditative inner science of Vajrayana Buddhism and yoga. Vajra Yoga studies the Buddha’s teachings on freedom and the yoga practices which support uncovering clearlight reality.
Robert A.F. Thurman is one of the world’s greatest philosophy teachers on Buddhism. His style of teaching the dharma captivates the listener and is at once a joy to listen to and awakening. Michele Loew teaches both philosophy and meditative practices that help us embody and transform. She will share morning Hatha Yoga, afternoon Sadhana meditation practices on Tara and the female wisdom buddhas, and evening Yoga Nidras and Dream and clearlight sleep yoga. Bob will teach philosophy sessions each day that will guide the rest of our program.
We will focus on the Female buddhas this week and the mother tantras of Heruka Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini.
Prices Range from $1900-2660.
