I would also say "family responsibilities" should be added to the list.
If one has a spouse or children (and the job necessary to support them for example), then to be "off the grid" for 3 years would be quite a feat!

By the way, does anybody knows the curriculum for the three year retreat in Dhagpo Kundrel Ling, that was created by H.H Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje?
I search on the site http://www.dhagpo-kundreul.org/en/index.php but could n`t find the details...

I would be very surprised if it was substantially different than the other Karma Kagyu 3 year retreat programs, but I don't know that for a fact. The lineage prayers would have a minor difference of course.
In the Tantra of the Beautiful Auspiciousness (bKra shis mdzes ldan gyi rgyud), this "Great Primordial Purity" (spyi gzhi) is defined as follows:

What is known as "The Great Primordial Purity”
Is the state abiding before authentic Buddhas arose
And before impure sentient beings appeared;
It is called the great Primordial radiance of immutable awareness.

*****
Sometimes you can get shown the light
In the strangest of places
If you look at it right.
