An Open Healing Retreat withVenerable Khenpo Lama Migmar Tseten,Harvard University Buddhist Chaplain

July 26, 27 and 28
Henriksen Hall

As Harvard University Buddhist Chaplain, Lama Migmar Tseten has served faculty, students and staff on campus and at the Sakya Institute for Buddhist Studies for over twenty years. 

A highlight of this weekend’s healing retreat is the Dakini’s Heart-Essence Chod. Lama Migmar will guide you step by step through this immersive and gentle practice. 

Based upon the female Buddha Vajrayogini, the ritual originated with the tenth century Indian yogi Mahasiddha Naropa and was passed down through the ages to Lama Migmar’s guru, Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, also the guru of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It has been used continuously to unblock any obstacle to complete well-being. Healing Chod is suitable for everyone, including those with chronic or mild illnesses. All are welcome. No prior knowledge, established practice, or experience of Buddhism is required.
