A chance to reflect on key challenges for practitioners based on insights found in the chant, Supplication to the Kagyü Gurus. The succinct summary of key guidelines for tantric practitioners found in this chant is a powerful and provocative reminder of essentials of tantric view, meditation, and lifestyle, no matter what particular form of practice you may be focusing on.
A traditional teacher's gift will be collected for Acharya Lief.
Judy Lief was in graduate school at Columbia University when she first met Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Inspired by the profundity, playfulness, and straightforwardness of his teachings, Judy moved to Boulder, Colorado to study further and in greater depth, attending the 1973 Vajradhatu Seminary. She served as head of practice & study at the 1978, 1979, and 1980 seminaries. In 1980, the Vidyadhara appointed Judy as the dean of Naropa Institute, a position she held through 1985. Judy and her family moved to Halifax in early 1986, where she continued to teach and again took on the position of executive editor of Vajradhatu Publications. She received the title of acharya, or “senior teacher” from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
