Longsal Saltong Tsalung Retreat: 18 – 23 April
from the Longsal Teachings of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
This retreat will be taught by authorised SMS 2nd Level instructor Elio Guarisco and is open to all who have received Transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. “The Yoga of Clarity and Emptiness” is the first teaching transmitted by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu from the precious cycle of The Vast Expanse of Luminous Clarity – Heart Essence of the Dakinis. This teaching is a set of practices applied in order to discover one’s natural condition through the experiences of clarity and emptiness. Closely connected to the practice of Yantra Yoga and Dzogchen Longde, these Teachings help one recognise the characteristics of one’s own body and mind that can create obstacles for spiritual practice, and also provide ways to balance and overcome them. These instructions teach how to become sensitive to the energy winds and channels and to activate their potential, through relaxation, the application of oils and so on. With this base, one is able to train in “inner heat” with the shape, colour and movement of energy winds and in the retention of the breath (Kumbhaka). One then experiences the relative signs and dispels obstacles from harsh experiences related to the elements.
