Sherab Chamma
The Loving Wisdom Mother

With Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
September 27-30, 2007
Crestone, Colorado

The primordial creative energy of the Divine Mother is the origin of existence and the infinite source of wisdom, love and compassion in the Bön tradition. Sherab Chamma is the Mother of All the Buddhas, the embodiment of the wisdom and love that lies within the hearts of each of us.

In this retreat Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach practices that help us retrieve this divine energy for physical and emotional healing, cultivation of wisdom, love and compassion, and connecting with the ultimate and profound nature of reality. The Wisdom Loving Mother is ever present, inviting us to unify with our perfected wholeness. Rinpoche will bring his great gift for presenting profound and ancient teachings in a way that is fresh and relevant to our daily lives, giving the perfect teaching for us at this moment.

This teaching is especially powerful for us of Chamma Ling, the solitary retreat center that is literally The Home of the Loving Mother. Please join us in discovering the Divine Mother under the guidance of our gifted teacher, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche.
