Center for Creative Inquiry Program and Nyingma Group Israel 


First Full Presence Mindfulness Retreat
in Israel

#first page.png

In this retreat, we will start by connecting deeply with our experience: how we breathe, how we see, how we hear, how we move. We will touch the ground of experience and learn to be fully present.


The next step is to expand into the whole range of how we live in the world. This includes the way we think, the emotions and concerns that drive us, the stories we tell, the 'reality' we inhabit, and the motives and intentions that determine our destiny. As we explore who we are and who we think we are, we will share our insights and discoveries.


Together, we will gain confidence in own ability to know, to care and to act, and awaken a deeper understanding and a more joyful and more relaxed way to be.

The retreat will be presented in English with no translation. 

In 1968, Tarthang Tulku, a Tibetan lama fully trained in the Vajrayana tradition that made Tibet such a center of wisdom and creative innovation, arrived in the West. A decade later, in 1977, he published Time, Space, and Knowledge: A New Vision of Reality, known to its students as TSK. Almost fifty years later, TSK continues to be studied and practiced around the world. TSK is a remarkable gift. For the first time, a Vajrayana master offers a vision of a transformed reality—fully consistent with the highest Buddhist teachings, such as Dzogchen, but directly addressed to the Western mind.  TSK is not part of any Buddhist tradition or system of thought: it involves no belief system and requires no ceremonies or rituals. It does not even depend on formal meditation. It offers a direct, experiential inquiry into the nature of mind and self, framed in terms of a new understanding of what it means to be in space, act in time, and rely on a knowing that does not belong to the self. Now, for the first time, the TSK vision is being presented in Israel. Jack Petranker, a close student of Tarthang Tulku for more than 40 years, and the editor or author of 10 books based on TSK, has distilled key elements of the TSK vision into an approach that he calls Full Presence Mindfulness, or FPM. FPM offers a systematic introduction to deeper ways of knowing that can be easily lost in contemporary mindfulness practice. Tarthang Tulku points to what it means to go deeper in this way when he writes: “People are told, ‘Be Here Now!’ But they do not understand ‘be’, they do not understand ‘here’, and they do not understand ‘now’.” FPM is transformative. Powerful, surprising, playful, and direct, it aims at the liberation of the modern mind.
