Ngöndro, meaning ‘foundational' or 'preliminary' practices is the root of the tree out of which all other Vajrayana Buddhist practices grow. Yuthok’s ngöndro, traditionally done in the context of a seven day retreat is incredibly transformative to one's mind, health, and life, and is the gateway into the profound path of the Yuthok Nyingthig.

This seven day online retreat combines instruction in the practice with sessions of silent meditation, group mantra recitation, prostrations, visualization and contemplation. 

This retreat concludes on the last day of the lunar year and we will finish the practice with an end of the year obstacle clearing protector practice.

Included in this retreat:

  • Recordings of Seven Days of Guided Online Practice (approximately four hours each) 
  • Yuthok Nyingthig Digital Practice Texts
