About the event

Join us for a 2-day retreat led by Marcy Vaughn, a senior student of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, as we explore the 5-line heart instruction of Dawa Gyaltsen, an 8th-century Tibetan meditation master in the Dzogchen tradition. Dzogchen means “great completion” and holds the fundamental view that each of us is inherently complete and whole as we are.

In this experiential retreat, Marcy will guide us to bring the teachings alive and apply them to the challenges that arise in our own lives. Integrating the teachings into our lives can help us open our hearts and transform our perceived limitations into unlimited possibilities as we discover the wisdom and light inherent within us in every moment.

This retreat is open to people of all faiths and beliefs. You do not need to adopt a particular faith or belief; you just need to be willing to face the experiences of your life directly and nakedly. 

Some previous meditation experience is highly recommended. 

The retreat will be held in person (non-residential) and an online Zoom option is available. Sponsored by the Southern Tier Sangha of the Olean Meditation Center.

Schedule: 

Saturday: 10:30 am – 4:30 pm

Sunday: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Registration includes lunch for in-person participants

Single day registration is available for in-person attendance on Saturday only.

If you are unable to pay the full ticket price, please contact oleanmeditation@gmail.com
