• Profound Treasury Retreat 2018 Fear and Courage: Rising to the Challenge of Wakefulness

Coming Home

This will be the sixth Profound Treasury Retreat based on the teachings of the venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and taught by Judy Lief. She is the editor of the extensive three-volume set, The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, which gives a penetrating overview of the three-yana journey from beginning to end. Over the years, the retreat and the sangha have evolved and matured. Our retreat environment is infused with the spirit of beginner’s mind where curious minds come together to explore, question and learn from each other, no matter one’s age or experience level. With this retreat we strive to cultivate an intimacy in the program which supports each student’s own personal spiritual development.

The Profound Treasury Retreat welcomes meditators of all ages and traditions who are interested in studying Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Buddhist teachings. We especially want to invite younger, newer students who have a meditation practice and have discovered Trungpa Rinpoche’s teachings. At the yearly Profound Treasury Retreat, students have an opportunity to deeply engage the wealth of this material in a contemplative atmosphere that includes intensive study and practice.

So, what you are doing this summer that could be life changing?

“Fear is an obstacle when you do not give in to it; but after you have given in, fear becomes kindling, an encouragement, and a pilot light.”
