Dzogchen, also known as the "great perfection," is a path of self-liberation and the highest form of teaching in the Bon Buddhist tradition. For practitioners with the capacity it offers the potential for liberation during a single lifetime and within a single body. The Seven Mirrors of Dzogchen is a powerful heart-essence teaching from the Tibetan Bön tradition, offering a direct introduction to the clear, open awareness of the dzogchen view as well as methods for maintaining this state.
The seven mirrors are: the heart mirror of the view, the heart mirror of the meditation, the heart mirror of the result, the heart mirror of conduct, the heart mirror that explains the pure realms and lands of samsara, the heart mirror of six-fold consummation, and the heart mirror that explains the benefit of meeting with this teaching.

This is a unique opportunity to directly experience the Five Elements teachings among the high pristine alpine meadows, lakes, dunes, streams and peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Wilderness. The group led by Peter May hike into the mountains to North Crestone Lake and experience the elements directly among the high peaks over six days.
Our team of talented volunteers has been working to develop a series of programs for this year. We are fortunate to have Tenzin Rinpoche teaching on the Essence of the Seven Mirrors of Dzogchen, Geshe Tenzin Yangton teaching the Phowa, and Peter May leading the Nourishing Ourselves with the Essence of the Elements. We also are planning a series of retreat on Tibetan Soul Retrieval with Geshe Denma Gyaltsen. Below are the highlights, and as details get worked out we will post more information.
Last summer Raven Lee and Tom Ward visited H.E Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche in France where he generously blessed the turquoise mala he is wearing in the photo to help support raising funds for Chamma Ling in Crestone. For your generous contribution of $108.00 dollars you can have one of the blessed beads of this mala on a red string and a high resolution photo of Yongdzin for printing wearing your bead. At the same time you will be helping sustain the Chamma Ling Crestone sangha's commitment to provide retreat cabins, build a teacher's cabin, and maintain the community house for spiritual education programs available to all of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche's students. We gratefully welcome your donations anytime and at all levels but hope you will take advantage of this unique and wonderful opportunity.
