Working with Wrathful Archetypes:
Exploring Dudjom Lingpa’s Dorje Dröllo Practice

• Dorje Dröllo is a very special practice for this time. The wrathful nature of the yidam (archetype) is well-suited to liberate anger and stubborn hidden obstacles in our shadow consciousness. This greatly benefits our ability to generate compassion in the face of volatile change.

In this event, we will experience a new translation of Dudjom Lingpa’s primary practice of Dorje Dröllo. Michael worked to make this text more accessible and appropriate for daily practice.


The Buddhist Point of View
Thursdays, October 12 — November 16, 7—9pm

• Buddha taught that we all have a naturally conscious and loving presence. However, we get distracted by our reactions to life situations and develop mental/emotional habits that overshadow our original nature. This six-week class will explore various Buddhist traditions and how they provide helpful ways to remember our true heart/mind of compassion.
