Düntün Retreat in the Blue Mountains

September 27 – October 4  2024

Without a foundation of samadhi, the many skillful methods of the Buddhist path will do little to transform our being. All Buddhist meditation is founded on the skillful practice of shamatha, that grounds us in our immediate reality; and the wisdom of vipashyana, that takes us beyond our habitual mind and opens us to the greater experience of awakening.

The retreat practice will be sitting meditation, combining shamatha and vipashyana as taught in the Tibetan Nyingma and Kagyu traditions.

Jakob Leschly  will lead the retreat, offering general instruction and individual interviews. Jakob Leschly began his studies of Buddhism in 1974 and has studied with numerous great teachers, particularly Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Jakob has been appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche as an instructor for Siddhartha’s Intent.
