"The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self."
- Albert Einstein

This workshop is about becoming liberated from fear and other disturbing emotions so you may live more fully and genuinely in all aspects of life. Ultimately, it's about achieving final liberation, or enlightenment.

Nearly all of us feel strongly attached to our physical body and to our sense of identity as a professional, a spouse, a son or daughter, for example. But our genuine self is far simpler, and more profound, than any of these. Through the practice of sleep yoga and other guided meditations, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche helps you to discover the truth of who you are: a sense of spacious awareness that is beyond the ego-based identity and which is eternal, changeless, indestructible, and serene. Realizing this truth is what liberates us from the fear and negative emotions that have trapped us in suffering. It can help us overcome fear even during the most challenging moments, including the time of our own death.

The meditations taught in this workshop include daytime contemplative practices from the Dzogchen, or "Great Perfection," tradition of Tibetan Bön Buddhism; as well as sleep yoga practices of the night, from the Bön Mother Tantra, which offer helpful support for one's dzogchen practice. Dzogchen is considered the path of self-liberation and the highest form of teaching and practice in the Bon Buddhist tradition. For practitioners, it offers the potential for liberation during a single lifetime and within a single body. Its practices transport the practitioner directly into the nature of mind, which is our true essence.

About the Workshop

This three-week workshop is divided into six teaching sessions plus an introduction to the workshop practices. The workshop is intended to be experiential rather than purely philosophical or conceptual in nature, with each teaching session providing guidance for your formal and informal practice. Rather than presenting extended lectures, every session consists of a series of short videos — each focused on a specific aspect of the teachings — whose cumulative duration is about an hour or less. Each Saturday and Tuesday of the workshop a new teaching session will be introduced.

The videos in the workshop were recorded specifically for this program, and once a teaching session has been introduced it remains available for your review throughout the duration of the course. It is important to us that you have as much time as you need to complete your work, so we are offering all participants extended access to the videos and other course materials for two weeks after the course formally ends. The workshop materials also include downloadable audio recordings of the guided meditations, as well as printable written instructions for each practice taught in the teaching sessions.

Rinpoche makes himself available throughout the three weeks of the workshop through our private workshop forums and messaging system, to answer questions about the teachings and your experiences with the practices. While you will have the ability to ask Rinpoche questions privately, we encourage you to use the forums so that everyone may benefit from your experiences and from Rinpoche's responses and guidance. Through the forums, you will be able to communicate and share your experiences with other group members, who will be working with the teachings along with you. Rinpoche has a very busy travel and teaching schedule and is in great demand, so he asks that your questions be about the teachings of this workshop and in particular about your experiences of the practice. He also asks that your questions come from the heart, rather than being conceptual or merely inquisitive in nature.
