Tummo I-III Teaching with Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche

May 2019

During these three day retreats in Boulder, Colorado, Khenpo covered the Kusum Rangshar. This was the sixth time that Khenpo has taught from this important text on Dzogchen written by the famous Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen Rinpoche. Tummo I retreat introduced Tummo (Inner Heat Yoga) as a supporting practice to abide in the Natural State. In Tummo II, Rinpoche continued teaching with the focus on the meditation practice to find greater clarity (deeper experience) of the Nature of Mind.

Comments from participating practitioners

“This practice strengthens my experience of daily resting in the nature of mind.”

“I found Khenpo la’s recent teachings in Boulder to be absolutely pivotal.  This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity for those of us in the Rocky Mountains to have the opportunity to receive continued teachings from the Kusum Rangshar text.”

“Khenpo and Geshe Yungdrung bring a transformative atmosphere of luminosity and accessibility in presenting the pointing out instructions of Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen.”

“The intro to Tummo Retreat began in a beautiful peaceful setting at the Starhouse in Boulder, CO. It was wonderful to connect with old friends and share the weekend receiving clear instructions with opportunity to practice and to familiarize with the preparatory Tummo practices. We all enjoyed the specially prepared picnic lunch together and time walking in the fresh mountain air. I look forward to returning next time. “
