We are grateful to extend an invitation to all disciples & apprentices, as well as their partners and long-term friends of the Aro gTér lineage, to attend an extended weekend apprentice event with Lama Bar-ché Dorje in the beautiful city of Wien, Austria, from November 21-24, 2019.

This event will offer the opportunity to share transmission with a contemporary Buddhist Lama and Tibetan Lineage holder within an urban encampment style, where living & teaching blends together into an unique experience.

As Lama Bar-ché says: “This retreat is for people interested in the Ling Gésar gTérma of Gang’dül Lingpa (Drüpchen Rang-rig Togden) and the practices of sKu-srung and mKha’srung (protectors of emanation body and protectors of space). We will find out that as practitioner we are all sKu-srung and mKha’srung. These practices have connections with the teaching on the five certainties. The sKu-srung feel total responsibility for the beings moving in space in order that the possibility for transmission is always available and connected with spacious passion. The mKha’srung feel responsible for the atmosphere and environment, for the same reason – in terms of connectedness with passionate space. In this lineage the sKu-srung and mKha’srung are a non-dual practice and can't be separated.
We have the passion and aspiration to become sKu-srung and mKha'srung in the world, in all circumstances, so that our experiential fearlessness can be of influence to all that we meet.”

The main theme of this event will be the “Gésar Nam’gyürs”, to be presented in Lama Bar-ché’s trademark non-linear style.

Space at Drala Ri, a private location within a historic landmark building is limited, so we would appreciate your early booking.


While attending the whole event is certainly preferable, we would also like to encourage short visits by offering “day passes”.
So, the cost for the complete event (from November 21-24) is EUR 125.
Attendance on Thursday 21 evening is free, a single day costs EUR 50.
