Spontaneous Creativity retreat with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

July 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Spontaneous Creativity, the title of Rinpoche’s newest book, “draws on the ancient teachings of the Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition to guide us in developing the ability to show up fully for our lives and express our creative gifts for the greater good.”  Rinpoche will offer support for participants to engage their creative nature, release pain identities that create blockages, and awaken to greater inspiration, awareness, openness, and abilities to joyfully serve others.

Chamma Ling Colorado invites you to join in an engaging weekend of heartfelt teachings and sharing.  This year’s annual event with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will be in Boulder, CO, at the beautiful Shambhala Center, conveniently located downtown at 1345 Spruce Street.

  A public talk will be offered Thursday evening, September 19, 6-7:30, with a book signing to follow. Entrance is $10. Friday morning teachings will begin at 9, with snacks, tea, and coffee provided during breaks, and conclude that evening at 5. Saturday will also open at 9 and later that day we will have a fun and lively auction with beautiful items from around the world.  This annual fundraiser directly supports Chamma Ling Retreat Center in Crestone, CO, nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, offering solitary and/or dark retreats for practitioners.

Following the auction, a traditional feast will be provided (cost included in registration), along with entertainment from retreat participants.  We conclude on Sunday at noon.

Registration is $285, with reduced rates for those interested in work study opportunities.
