Access On-Demand for 1 Year!

Join Carlos de León for a profound meditation practice series of ten sessions drawn from 3 Supreme Traditions (Dzogchen, Trika Shaivism, and Mahamudra) and focussed on a universal model of ascension: the number "9”. Meditation, considered the ‘Royal Path’ to enlightenment, has particular relevance for the times we are now living.

For new students, the program introduces the essential elements and experience of a profound meditation practice. For more seasoned practitioners, it hopes to clarify the states of consciousness with a goal of Liberation.

This series of teachings combine 3 Supreme Meditation Traditions of the highest level:

  • Dzogchen ("Great Perfection" or "Great Completion", also known as Atiyoga - "utmost yoga"), is a direct realization tradition from Tibet. Aimed at discovering or ‘knowing' the ultimate ground of existence, Dzogchen draws on the Bön tradition of Tibet, and the teachings of Garab Dorje´s lineage, and other Mahasiddhas.
  • Trika Shaivism is one of the ancient Tantric traditions of India. Its origins lie in a confluence that includes the Kaula, Trika, and Krama streams of Tantra that flourished in Kashmir and the Swat Valley from the early Christian Era until the 12th century. This teaching will include some elements of the Pratabhijla school of Kashmir Shaivism.
  • Mahamudra is the main teachings of the so-called “New Schools of Vajrayana”; defined by Gampopa as "the realization of the natural state as awareness-emptiness, absolutely clear and transparent, without root." Gampopa also states that Mahamudra is "the paramita of wisdom, beyond thought and expression.” It allows, even encourages, effortless and instantaneous realization.

Goals of the Program:

  • To clarify, receive guidance and advance in your level of practice, whether beginner or advanced;
  • To understand the essential practices, the goal, and the importance of “right view”;
  • To gain a fuller appreciation of both the ‘gradual’ approach and the 'Instantaneous' approaches to meditative technologies;
  • To experience the levels of a profound meditation practice within our online group, and have a clearer picture of the best approach to use in your personal practice.

Program Components

  • Part 1: Essential Powers for the Practice of Meditation
First Power: Right View
Second Power: Love and Compassion
Third Power: Awaken Effort
Fourth Power: Joyful Effort
Fifth Power: Grace

  • Part 2: The 9 Levels of Shaktipat, according to Abhinavagupta
Shaktipat is considered an act of Grace (Anugraha) on the part of the Guru where an element of Divine consciousness is held to enter the Self of the disciple. Shaktipat can be transmitted in person, or at a distance through an object such as a flower or fruit, and constitutes an initiation into the school or the spiritual family (kula) of the Guru.

  • Part 3: The 9 Levels of a Practitioner
The teachings of the 9 Drops of Clarity present the practice of meditation through 9 different levels of experience; and, considering that each one of us has a different background, the possibility of a completely unique experience.

Each level of capacity could, by itself, take us to the final goal; yet the levels can also represent a gradual map of awakening. Carlos de León will share a taste of the High, Middle, and Lower Capacities and the three sublevels within each level through meditation sessions hosted during each class.




Teachings are further complemented by experiential online group practices to help ignite the beginning and/or strengthen your connection to the 9 Drops of Clarity direct realization meditation practices. Whether you are new to the 3 supreme traditions (Dzogchen, Trika Shaivism, and Mahamudra), or you are an advanced practitioner of one of the paths, this series is designed to illuminate and further the course of your journey.
