Highest Yoga Tantra Class*

The Yoga of Experiencing Nectar

On this Saturday half-day retreat, which is part of our monthly Highest Yoga Tantra retreat series, we will be focusing on the Yoga of Experiencing Nectar. This Yoga – or practice – teaches us special methods for skillfully relating to our various enjoyments, such as food and music. Normally we respond to these in an ordinary way that causes us to develop attachment, which swiftly becomes painful. keeps us stuck in an experience of suffering. By training in this profound Yoga, we learn to transform our enjoyments into a blissful wisdom-based minds that frees us from attachment and draws us closer to a Buddha’s enlightened world.

There will be two sessions, each consisting of an introduction and an extensive guided meditation. There will also be an opportunity for discussion.

* The purpose is for practitioners to deepen their experience of these extraordinary meditation practices.These retreats are open to those who have received the Highest Yoga Tantra (HYT) empowerments of Heruka & Vajrayogini. These empowerments are given over three days, typically at Manjushri Centre in England. Most recently they were granted at the 2023 International Kadampa Summer Festival.
