WebcastGermany2Throughout 2015, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will offer a series of monthly webcast teachings on the topic of Soul Retrieval. This yearlong course is based on Rinpoche’s upcoming book The True Source of Healing: How the Ancient Tibetan Practice of Soul Retrieval Can Transform and Enrich Your Life (Hay House, summer 2015). Each live webcast is free and open to all! 

Part 1: Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015
Reconnecting with Your Joyful Essence: An Introduction to the Tibetan Practice of Soul Retrieval

CoverDesignWhat better way to bring in the New Year than to make a yearlong commitment to heal your soul and revitalize your life? In this daylong “Internet retreat,” Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will introduce his yearlong course on soul retrieval. In two 90-minute teaching sessions, Rinpoche will explain the source of these teachings, what it means to retrieve your soul, and how to identify signs of soul loss. He will guide the practice of the “Three Precious Pills” to help you reconnect with your inherently joyful nature. Two additional guided meditation sessions will be led by a senior teacher.

Jan. 10 schedule:
9:00–10:30 a.m.: Teaching with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
11:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m.: Guided Practice with senior teacher Marcy Vaughn
1:15–2:45 p.m.: Teaching with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
3:30–4:30 p.m.: Guided Practice with senior teacher Marcy Vaughn

About This Series

These practices of Soul Retrieval can help you tap into the ultimate source of healing. Done daily through the entire year of this course, they have the potential to transform your life. They can help you to:
  • Avoid losing your vitality when faced with difficult life challenges.
  • Revitalize your personal life, family life and professional life.
  • Recognize powerful internal and external sources of healing.
  • Experience healing on all levels—physically, energetically, psychologically and spiritually.
  • Come home to your inherently joyful and creative nature.
  • Bring increased happiness and well-being to others.
  • Progress on the path to higher liberation.
The practices in this course draw from the ancient Tibetan Bon Buddhist teachings of Soul Retrieval. They omit traditional soul-retrieval ceremonies and rituals and focus, instead, on the most essential elements of the core teachings.
