SMS Base Retreat in Sofia, Bulgaria

Dargaeling Sofia Community is very happy to host a SMS Base Retreat with Jim Valby,13-17 February 2015.

In this retreat the main point will be emphasized — primordial presence, unaffected by the interesting experiences of emptiness, clear perceptions, and strong sensations produced by our semdzin and rushen practices. We will prepare for the March 5 Worldwide Guruyoga transmission with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.

The retreat will take place in the place of Dargaeling in Sofia. On 13th February there will be a public talk, place to be confirmed later. As we would like to offer this retreat for free for all participants, we will be very gratefull for any sponsorship or donations. For participants outside of Sofia we can provide help with organisation – transport, accomodation, etc.
