December 26 / 12:00 AM - January 1 / 12:00 AM


Werma and Scorpion Seal Retreat

This year's Werma and Scorpion Seal intensive will be dedicated to the practice and study of a unique and beautiful text by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. It is a practice guide, which assists the student warrior in navigating the journey through generation stage practice, from the initial steps of enlightened imagination into the sacred world of pure vision.  While the text itself is only available at Scorpion Seal Assembly, this year's retreat will break ground by offering teachings on this exceptional text to all Scorpion Seal practitioners and Werma practitioners who have attended Rigden Abhisheka.



The program begins at 7:30pm on December 26th. January 1st is a departure day.  Those who already have received the reading transmission for this text at a Scorpion Seal Assembly may attend any portion of the retreat.  Those Werma practitioners who do not yet have the lung, are requested to attend all five days.

 Interviews will still be given along with daily talks by the acharya.

This program counts towards 5 days of required group practice.



The New Years Eve Soirée at Karme Choling will begins at 7pm with potluck hors d’oeuvres and drinks.  Participants, KCL staff and local community members can choose to relax in our living room, join the more festive environment in our dining room or dance in the Main Shrine Room.  Dancing will begin at 9pm after a Karme Choling Year End Fundraiser.  We will welcome the New Year with mediation and contemplation in the Main Shrine Room.
