New Year Astrological Prediction for 2024
Teachings on Bön Of Fruition (Ways of Bön part II)
We are happy to announce Nyima Woser Choekhortshang Rinpoche will share with us a general prediction for the year 2024 according to the Tibetan Astrology, and he will teach the second part on the Nine Ways Of Bön started in January 2023.
Yungdrung Bön or Eternal Bön, is one of the oldest spiritual traditions in the world and the indigenous religion of Himalaya and Zhang Zhung. Its origins trace back very ancient roots from the teachings of Buddha Tönpa Shenrap Miwoche, the founder of Yungdrung Bön, about 18’000 years ago. Tonpa Shenrab bestowed countless teachings according to the multiple different capacities of all beings. All of these teachings can be recognized within the so called Nine Ways Of Bön which are categorized into two branches: The Causal Vehicles of Bön and the Bön of Fruition.
The Bön Of Fruition includes Genyen Thegpa (The Way Of Virtuous Adherers), Drangsong Thegpa (The Way Of The Great Ascetics), Akar Thegpa (The Way Of Pure Sound of the Primordial White A), Yeshen Thegpa (The Way Of The Primeval Shen)) and Lame Thegpa (The Supreme Way).

Meditations for manifesting your positive qualities
At this retreat Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will draw on the ancient wisdom of the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition to guide us in developing the ability to show up fully for our lives and clear whatever blocks us from expressing our creative gifts for the greatest good.
Mention creativity, and what comes to mind? For many of us, creativity is the province of someone with a singular gift toiling away in service to their art. From this perspective, creativity is a solitary endeavor — the struggle of the individual to express their distinctive vision to the world. But what if we looked at creativity through a wider lens, as a dynamic force that animates us and connects us with every being on the planet? From this perspective, creativity is not just a spark igniting the fire of inspiration. It is a way of living spontaneously from the sacred space within us — from the source of infinite potential and positive qualities, such as love, compassion, and joy. Expression in any voice, any form that emerges from this core, has the power to heal us and benefit others. The heart of creativity is being of service.

Chöd: Cutting our Bondage to Samsara
Ani Sherab Wangmo is from Mexico and she is a unique master with her own way of teaching, very direct and clear, straight to the point. She is also the only bonpo nun living and teaching in the West and this is will be the first time teaching in Italy.
Chöd as the topic of this retreat is a sacred offering done traditionally at night, and it is one of the Four Main Generosities in Bon tradition. Usually we do daily: Sang Chöd, Chütor, Sur Chöd, and Chöd. The text is from Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen Rinpoche and it is called The Laughter of the Khandros.
During this weekend retreat, practitioners will understand the great potential that this sacred practice of Chöd has for their daily lives as well as for the advancement of their most profound spiritual practice. Chöd means literally to CUT. Through this sacred visualized offering we CUT the deep root of the main poison that keeps us suffering in Samsara: Ignorance. This practice requires concentration, trust, discipline, and deep commitment. It is also a very joyful way to purify our attachment and cultivate generosity in the most profound way.
During this weekend of teaching, the practitioner will learn the basics of how the drum or damaru keeps the pace of Compassion during our recitation and visualization. We will have practice sessions after the text is explained and understood. Therefore, it is very useful that all practitioners bring a damaru. The sil nyen or flat bell will not be part of our practice till the practitioners handle the drum well.
Those that do not own a damaru and would like to purchase it, it will be provided by Ligmincha Italy association, but the availability is defined by a pre-order. More informations will be provided when the registrations for this retreat will be opened.
