After a kind of turbulent year, we are very happy to tell that Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche have accepted to return to Gjerrild in August 2021. I guess you all know that we can be forced to cancel again according to the present disturbing circumstances.

This year’s teaching will be the continuation of Mipham Rinpoche’s ‘ Triology of the primordial mind’ (gnug sems skor gsum).

This teaching explains the distiction between, what you can call ‘mental mind’ and ‘Nature of Mind’. The main theme is primordial liberation in the basal clear light, self-pristine wisdom. The emphasis is on being introduced to and identifying ‘Nature of mind’ in naked experience through Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche’s quintessential instructions.

The first part of the teachings exist in english translation as ‘Fundamental mind’. The next two parts are, as far as we are aware of, not translated into english.

Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche is teaching in english.

Important notice: The location of the retreat is not without certain limits, so no one is assured participation without registration in advance. During the retreat everybody would have to help preparing for the meals, doing the dishes and cleaning the areas we are using. These tasks will never interfere with the teaching sessions.

Bring along sleeping bags and bed linen.

It’s possible to arrive the day before the retreat starts if that’s more convenient for you, but we must know in advance.

ABOUT COVID: We of cource don’t know what the situation will be in August. But we think that a big part of participants have got vaccine at that time. For people who haven’t we will, as things look right now, ask for a fresh PCR test,which shows that you are not infected. We might also have to wear face mask when we move around in the house, after all we are not such a big place and people will have to stay quite close, but we’ll see about that. Everybody coming from outside Denmark need to be aware of the rules, there at the given time is needed for entering Denmark.

We’ll try to inform everybody enroled, about the situation, in August just before the seminar.
