Ngöndro & Werma Practice Intensive Weekend (February)


with Benoît Côté
February 16 / 9:00 AM - February 17 / 5:30 PM

A two-day intensive practice and study program for all Werma and Ngöndro practitioners. We create a retreat environment, with silence practice until teatime in the afternoon. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch and eat at the Centre.


As part of the morning session, there is a reading period during which one can also do some stroke practice. Please bring a text you would like to read and contemplate, as well as your brush. The afternoon discussion period starts with a short Wheel of Wisdom practice. Please bring your liturgy.
