Daylong Retreat with Gus Cutz: Tantra

Tantra: The Swift Path to Enlightenment–Interested?

“The practice of tantra involves a combination of emptiness-yoga — through which all ordinary conceptions of one-self are dissolved — and deity-yoga — in which one cultivates the enlightened identity of a particular meditational deity.”

― Lama Thubten Yeshe

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, tantra is considered to be a swift path to enlightenment. Tantric practitioners learn to think, speak, and act as if they are already fully enlightened buddhas. How can you achieve such an extraordinary transformation? Join Gus Cutz for an exploration of this profound and esoteric path to awakening.

The retreat will include discussions and guided meditations. Making the most of this opportunity to cultivate transformation, we will practice noble silence during all the breaks. Please come, bring your friends, and joyfully plant the seeds for your swift path to full enlightenment!
