Drupon Rachel Dodds and Giorgio Savigliano will guide the second Three Year Retreat at the Milarepa Retreat Center starting at the beginning of 2023. Drupon Rachel has been authorized by His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche as Drupon of the Milarepa Retreat Center with authority to lead the three year retreat and give empowerments.

This is a rare and wonderful oppurtunity to receive the complete teachings and transmission of the entire Five fold Path of Mahamudra and the Six Yogas of Naropa in the Drikung Kagyu traditional retreat. Drupon Rachel will pass on the traditional teachings, empowerments and transmission as well as training in ritual and ceremony such as the Fire Puja, Ganachakra and Dharmapala practice. In addition she together with Giorgio will guide each student individually in a holistic way using many modalities to support the specific challenges of non-Himalayan practitioners.
Interested students should start preparing now and send their applications to Drupon Rachel.
Before the Three Year Retreat one must do a Hundred Day Retreat at the Milarepa Retreat Center under the guidance of Drupon Rachel and Giorgio. This must be completed by the summer of 2022.
There will be a two week preparatory retreat for all prospective retreatants in the summer of 2022 where H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Thinley Lhundup will bestow the necessary empowerments and teachings for beginning the Three Year Retreat in 2023.
For prospective retreatants with financial issues there are possibilities for sponsorship or scholarship. Please speak with Drupon Rachel about this. The most important thing is your deep wish to do such a retreat from the bottom of your heart for the benefit of all beings to reach their highest potential. This great wish alone will bring together the conditions needed for you to accomplish your goal.
