As time allows, he will also offer more detailed explanations for some empowerments.

The full list of empowerments is as follows. Please note that apart from the first three for Friday morning, the order of the others are NOT set at this time. More information on the schedule, and about how to approach empowerments, will be given in May.

All are welcome, including families — please write to if you have any questions about bringing your child. Please note children must have adult supervision at all times.

TIME: Morning 9am-12.3opm,  lunch, then 2.30pm to evening (with breaks). Sunday morning may start slightly later due to the ending of the two-week retreat early that morning. Rinpoche will continue with empowerments after the close of the two-week retreat.

COSTS: $120 for three days, or $40 per day. All prices include dorm accommodations, empowerments and instructions and all meals from Friday lunch through Sunday lunch.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Please note that because this event is concurrent with a two-week retreat, most likely there will only be dorm accommodations available. All dorms are high-ceiling, well-ventilated and are laid out with many space dividers for visual privacy. Please contact us directly if you have special needs and would like to try for a private room. Camping or day attendance is also possible. 

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED and registration forms will be posted in May.
