INSTRUCTIONS IN AUTHENTIC MEDITATION September 19-20, online weekend retreat with Erik Pema Kunsang. Languages: English, Russian, Ukrainian, Portuguese

What to expect

This online retreat offers a great opportunity to receive and apply in one’s practice extremely precious meditation instructions shared by a student of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, one of the greatest masters of meditation of the 20th century.

The retreat will take place on the weekend of September 19-20, so that working people, who usually cannot make time on weekdays, can join. Participants will receive teachings online during the morning sessions, and then put these instructions into practice during individual offline sessions after lunch.

Erik Pema Kunsang

An outstanding translator of Dharma, Erik Pema is also a practicing yogi, a teacher of meditation, therefore Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has encouraged him to share his knowledge and experience. When teaching meditation, Erik focuses on a simple and natural presence that helps people to explore their mind and its intrinsic freedom. The simple way of being present can be opened up to allow such qualities as compassion, love, and wisdom to unfold in a most natural way.
