Dakini Yoga Refresher

Vajrayogini Guided Day Retreat

with Nick Birdsall

Saturday, January 20 | 9:00am - 3:00pm

For those with Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments only.

The bliss explained by Buddha in completion stage Tantra is unequaled among all other types of bliss and is therefore called “great bliss.” This great bliss can be experienced only by those who are engaged in Highest Yoga Tantra practice, and by Buddhas. Through causing our inner winds to gather, abide and dissolve within our central channel, melting the drops within it, we will experience such great bliss which function to prevent our subtle mistaken appearance. 

While we may feel far from such an extraordinary accomplishment, we can easily create all the causes and conditions for such great bliss to naturally arise for us in the future. Through our correct imagination in our Guru Yoga practice of Heruka or Vajrayogini, we will move quickly to this unequaled blissful state and then be able to draw all other beings to such bliss.

Kadam Trina will guide three sessions using the condensed practice of Dakini Yoga. Each session will focus on how we create the causes for great bliss through a specific part of this Guru Yoga practice.


Session 1, 9:00-10:15am

Session 2, 10:45am-12:00pm


The wisdom of the clear light of all Buddhas appears in the form of Venerable Vajrayogini.

By relying upon her with deep faith, and putting our wisdom imagination into practice, we can swiftly accomplish a blissful, great compassion that is the real quick path to enlightenment.


Delicious vegetarian lunch included!
