Post Festival Retreat

In this retreat we will have the opportunity to deepen our understanding and experience of the practice of Vajrayogini that we received during the Festival.

The meditation sessions will be guided and based on the sadhanas Quick Path to Great Bliss and The Blissful Path and based on the text New Guide to Dakini Land.
