Namkha Retreat with Ngakpa Seng-ge Dorje

Retreat with Seng-ge Dorje

From July 5 until July 10.
Oakland, CA, US
Ngakpa Seng-ge Dorje will be hosting a retreat dedicated to the practice of sky-weaving, or Namkha, from July 5-10. The practice of Sky Weaving is called 'Namkha' in Tibetan, which means 'sky' or 'dimension'. This meditation practice involves weaving 'skies' of coloured wool, which link our energy with the energy of the elements, through the Tantric craft of sound and vision. The beauty of the Sky Weaving, which is empowered through mantra, magnetises personal 'demons'(neuroses, fears and obsessions) and releases them within the skies of each element, In Tantra we talk of the 'skies' of the five elements; earth, water, fire, air and space. Each element is a sky (dimension) of meaning, and each element is associated with an emotional confusion and a liberated energy.
