Overview of Our
Journey with Dakini's Whisper
"The goal of this path is to become both completely human and completely Buddha,
to awaken to both at the same time. Chö practice can do that."
- Chöying Khandro
Vajrayana Buddhism or Tantra and Chö offer a path for realizing awakening in a single lifetime. Although Tantra and Chö offer profound techniques for realizing our true nature, the basis of the entire path of awakening is the Buddhist foundations of renunciation, bodhicitta, and the wisdom of emptiness. To walk this path is to continue to strengthen our practice and understanding of these foundations while experientially expanding and deepening our appreciation and realization of the profundity of awakening.
Dakini’s Whisper offers dedicated practitioners structured opportunities to engage the paths of Vajrayana, Chö, Mahamudra and Dakini, as expressed by our teacher's particular lineages. We currently offer separate, yet aligned and parallel, "journeys" and self-paced Immersions:
Chö Mastery Journey is a comprehensive overview of the Ganden and Dakini Ear-Whispered lineages and their lineage practices.
Kechara Journey is a deep exploration of the Eleven Yogas of Naropa and the Vajrayogini practice.
Other in-depth Immersions Journeys are designed and offered at various times.
NEW Dakini Journey is a deep dive into Dakini teachings and practices.
The Essential Journey is a focused, intentional study, contemplation and meditation through the Lamrim, the Stages of the Path to Awakening.
In addition, for those seeking a more personalized approach, members have the opportunity to develop a personal practice curriculum together with Khandro-la.

Take a deep dive into the heart of the Dakini, this embodiment of awakening! Many streams of Choying Khandro, Khandro-la's, blessed teachings will merge into this river of homecoming to aid you in uncovering and awakening to your own boundless and most fulfilling potential expressed as the Dakini in your life, moment to moment.
The Chö Mastery Journey
Is a comprehensive training program for the Lineage of Wandering Chöpas, the Machik Ḍākinī Ear-Whispered lineage (Machik Khandro Nyengyü). For most participants, the journey will unfold over the course of about five years. While some aspects of the program are self-paced, there will also be required empowerment and lineage retreats.
Regardless of participants' level of experience, the journey will also serve as an exploration of vital and advanced subjects and meditative practices to be further unfolded, deepened and integrated into your spiritual journey.
The Kechara Journey
PILGRIMAGE TO DAKINI LAND
Features a monthly online retreat with structured practice and reflection. It is designed to delve into a deep exploration of the eleven yogas of the creation phase of Vajrayogini practice. The completion phase is also introduced and practiced.
Throughout the year we will be integrating study and practice related to the precious Vajrayogini teaching and practice into our life journey. The group practice also supplements our personal yidam practice on the joutney.
