Gateway to Chö:
Empowerment, Transmission, and Practice
This, our first anual Dakini's Whisper US retreat, is devoted to entering the gateway to Chö--especially the Ear-Whispered Chö lineage and its deep repository of blessings. The retreat will include the empowerment for Chö, reading transmissions and brief commentary. All of these will plant seeds that will blossom and develop in you as the capacity to benefit all beings on the path of Chö. Throughout this weekend program, we will be nestled in the natural environment of Oregon's Willamette Valley, helping participants immerse themselves in, receive, and explore the profundity of Chö practice.

Chö practice was revealed by Machik Labdrön (11-12th cent.) and transmitted in an unbroken stream up through the present time. It is a radical method for cutting through ego-fixation and cultivating compassion and fearlessness. Our practice involves the entirety of body, speech and mind - playing musical instruments, chanting with melodies, and visualization and meditation.

Through the integration of all these, we welcome the negative feelings or emotions which we have pushed away and the harmful forces that ordinarily give rise to fear and reactivity, making offerings of our own body to nourish and satisfy them. Through this process, we come to see the equality of all phenomena and our indestructible true nature.
