Once the Shangpa ngondro practices are completed, students may continue into the Shangpa Training Program, a four-five year program of successive teachings and meditation practices from the Shangpa Lineage.
This level of practice includes meditations on Chakrasamvara and Vajra Yogini, as well as the wisdom dakini Sukhasiddhi’s Six Yogas. This in depth yogic meditation training focuses on the heart of the meditations done in Shangpa three-year retreat.
This training requires the willingness and steadfast effort to process the psychological and spiritual issues that come up with intensive spiritual practice. Any issues that hinder or block the participants realization and unique gifts from unfolding will come up and need to be processed consciously. This allows for the individual’s joy, peace, and other qualities to manifest.
Students move towards and into realization of true nature, the nondual reality of truth. In addition to formal practice, songs of realization and aspiration prayers from the awakened lamas of the lineages continue to inform and enliven one’s path, enhancing understanding and realization.
The next Shangpa program is scheduled to begin in 2020. If you are interested in joining the Shangpa Program when it starts in 2020, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Please see the Shangpa program description in the Programs tab, deeper studies.
