We will be given Dzogchen teachings and instructions by Drubdra Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin, the abbot of the meditation school of Triten Norbutse, the seat of the Yungdrung Bön Tibetan tradition in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Appointed to this role 22 years ago by the great Lopön Tenzin Namdak himself, he is a highly experienced and qualified teacher and able to teach both experienced Dzogchen yogis to absolute beginners. Read a full biography here

We are delighted and honoured that Khenpo will be giving us a range of Dzogchen teachings. These teachings are considered the highest spiritual teachings and are present within the Tibetan lineages of Bön and Buddhism.

He will be giving Dzogchen teachings, the practice of the White Ah, Shine, Tsa Lung & Tummo, as well as advice for how to practise Dzogchen in daily life.

About As It Is

As It Is is something between a Dzogchen retreat and a festival.

At the heart of the Dzogchen teachings is the principle of integration. Our mission is to give people the opportunity to receive the transmission of Dzogchen teachings and to practise together in a beautiful natural setting. We will also participate in other activities, whilst doing our best to integrate the teachings of Dzogchen and remain in the so-called Nature of Mind.

Having recognised this state, and using secondary practices that support our abiding in this state, we will have more opportunity to plant seeds of liberation that can then be cultivated in our everyday lives. Over time we will be able to stabilise ourselves in this profound state and experience less suffering, more self-arising bliss and wisdom.

Over these 3 days and 3 nights, we will have the unique opportunity to receive and practise teachings from a great Dzogchen master from an unbroken ancient lineage, attend a series of amazing workshops and classes like Tibetan yoga, breathwork, magical movements, Green Tara.

Doing our best to integrate the teachings of Dzogchen we will take part in a complete range of other practices that work with the Body, Speech and Mind - movements, breathwork, visualisations.

Alongside the Dzogchen teachings from Khenpo-La, there will be workshops throughout the weekend including Green Tara practice, Tibetan Yoga, Tsa Lung and Tummo (Inner Fire), Breathwork, Mindful Movement, Sound Healing, Sacred Singing Circles (including Bön and Buddhist mantras), Voice Opening, Poetry & Storytelling around the fire, Tarot, Nature connection, Sauna, Cold dips, Waterfalls
