Ordinary Mind - Boundless Wisdom

The retreat is open only to those who have received the Dzogchen Transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu or Yeshi Silvano Namkhai.

The retreat is about how our relative condition is connected to our absolute nature. We will elaborate the topic exploring quotations from various sources including Santi Maha Sangha Base book. It is not enough to just establish this connection in theory so using various methods Rinpoche taught we try to get some experiential idea of the seamless quality of our chaotic changing temperament and its Buddha nature.

Chöd practice every evening + questions and review of the Practice


About the instructor:

Steven Landsberg

Steven Landsberg went to India in 1967 and spent almost ten years there studying Indian classical music and Tibetan Buddhism.  After returning to the United States, he had the fortunate opportunity to meet Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and be introduced to the view and practice of Dzogchen.  Steven immersed himself in the Santi Maha Sangha program which Rinpoche started in the 1990s and became an active participant in the establishment of Tashi Gar Norte in 2002.  He served on their Gakyil from 2008-2013.  Rinpoche authorized him to teach in 2010 and he has been travelling throughout South America and Europe giving courses on the Santi Maha Sangha base during the last eight years and public courses on mindful presence.  He is currently serving as the president of the International Dzogchen Community.
