Bardo Study Group

ALL WELCOME! The group is studying the book "Mind beyond Death" by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Dave Tyfield is unable to continue leading the Bardo Study Group. We are happy that Ani Tsondru, a nun in the Kagyu Lineage, has expressed interest in leading the group. She has completed a 3,5 year closed retreat plus a further 4 year retreat. She is now leading Contemplative Wilderness Within trails mainly in the Umfolozi area. She is currently in Spain but the group will continue as from September this year.

Next dates: To be confirmed

With profound understanding of the Western mind and warm informality, The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche makes the mysterious Tibetan teachings on the bardos - the intervals of life, death, and beyond- completely available to the modern reader.
