The Roots That Unite Us: The Mahamudra Legacy of the Vidyadhara, Trungpa Rinpoche:  
In this week-long meditation retreat, we will explore the unique and various ways that Trungpa Rinpoche taught the Mahamudra over the course of his lifetime. The practice will draw from both traditional texts as well as the Vidyadhara's non-traditional ways of transmitting the sutra, tantra and essence Mahamudra instructions.
The days will end by 6:00 before dinner, but breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Sadhana of Mahamudra (provided)

About Acharya Chapman: Acharya Chapman has been a student of Trungpa Rinpoche's since 1974. After his parinirvana, she spent twenty years studying Mahamudra with Thrangu Rinpoche. She completed the three-year retreat at Gampo Abbey, and led two subsequent retreats, including 9 months of intensive Mahamudra practice. She has been authorized by Thrangu Rinpoche to teach the traditional Kagyu Mahamudra as well as having received his blessing to teach Trungpa Rinpoche's approach to Mahamudra. Additionally, she is a lead teacher for the Ashe Mahamudra practice, which is based upon the terma teachings of the Vidyadhara.
