The Vajrayogini Meditations are taught in this cycle, including 1) Three Dakinis Chod 2) the torma offering song from the Dakini’s Heart Essence (the mkha’ ‘gro snying thig) known as Calling the 100,000 Dakinis 3) The Generation stage Vajrayogini practice. In order to practice the generation stage Vajrayogini meditation, Drupon requires that one must have completed the ngondro, or preliminary practices of Vajrayana first. One may however, receive the empowerment before completing ngondro, but to do the practice, one has to have completed ngondro. However the first two practices  may be engaged regardless of having completed ngondro or not.

Chod is a meditation method through meeting fear and neurosis with compassion and skill. Rather than renounce these mind states, in Chod, they are allowed to transform and be reintegrated as keys to innate wisdom.
This short course offers an opportunity to learn Chod through the practice of the concise Rinchen Trengwa Chod, affectionately called the 3 Dakini Chod because it engages the peaceful, magnetizing and wrathful forms of the Dakini
The Rinchen Trengwa is an advanced Chod meditation cycle which is complete with all the elements of Tantric meditation practice.
