Alert But Not Alarmed
Mandy McNulty, July 2003
I first heard about the sixteen day Nyung-Ne retreat way back in January. People said it was ‘an amazing purification practice', but they also talked about how hard it was - with fasting and hundreds of prostrations every day. Being plagued by accidents and health problems, I loved the idea of being able to do an intense purification practice.
The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected - My First Nyung-Ne
Janet Whitlow, June 2003
To be honest, I had no idea what a Nyung-Ne was. I just had a vague notion that it was a fasting and prostration retreat (now I know it is Action tantra), and that if I attended just one it was equivalent to three months of purification retreat. As I work full time, such a benefit as this was mighty attractive.
Nyung-Ne Files - the Ridiculous and the Sublime
Wayne Chapman, March 1999
When Miffi asked if I wanted to do a Nyung-Ne I said "sure". Having never done one before I thought it would be a challenge for the soul and mind. Oh boy! What a challenge! Whoever requested to have it in summer must have been a follower of the Marquis de Sade in a previous life.
A Marathon Like No Other - the Eight Nyung-Nes
Miffi Maxmillion, March 1998
Sixteen people completed the eight Nyung-Nes over the Saka Dawa period leading up to the Buddha's enlightenment and passing into nirvana. Ven. Ailsa, who led the retreat along with Ven. Tshering and Ven. Deikyi, explained that “a Nyung-Ne is a powerful purification practice in relation to Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion.
Easter Nyung-Ne Retreat
Our annual Easter Retreat is a profound practice on Chenrezig the compassion buddha. This purification method involves keeping physical discipline, meditation and prostrations, and silence and fasting on alternate days. It is especially useful for people whose schedules cannot accommodate long-term retreat. Can't attend this year? We invite you to sponsor a Nyung-Ne and help a fellow LTC member to attend!
Cost is $180 for the retreat and offerings. Ask at reception if you need sponsor, or if you would like to help an LTC member to attend.
