He is the kindest person I have ever met. He also has a remarkable level of intuition with people and situations. Even Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche himself would often ask him for advice due to his abilities.

Somebody said the replay was available on the Dharma Sun website. I can't seem to find it on the website, does anyone have a link?

And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I, too, abide
To dispel the misery of the world.

You need to be logged into the website, then go here: https://dharmasun.org/courses/mahamudra-dzogchen/

You may need to register and pay for the full seminar as well, I'm not too sure. I've paid, so maybe that's why I can see the recordings.

I'd say it well worth it though, you can pay on a sliding scale, and it will allow you to also watch the second half of the retreat, which isn't being webcast openly. I think it's pretty likely Rinpoche will go much more in-depth into Mahamudra/Dzogchen in the second half, and also give pointing out instructions.

Confusing. What are the hours? Was there a second session on Saturday? On the website there are two Saturday videos, and I could swear there was no mention of the second session...

There are supposed to be two sessions with a short break in between. But on the first day Rinpoche kept going, making it one big session. They still split it in two for the recordings though.

I don't think there's a set time for the end of the first session/start of the second session. Rinpoche's style is to speak till he's done, whenever that happens to be. Then they take a little break before starting the next session.
