CANCELLED Vajrayogini Retreat


with Andrea Doukas

Generosity policy applies: pay what you can afford.

The program will begin on Friday evening with a talk by Ms. Doukas on Vajrayogini practice, as well as connections we sadhakas may find between Vajrayogini and our practice of Werma.

Saturday morning we will practice, and celebrate our Kagyu inheritance by listening to teachings on Vajrayogini practice given by the Vidyadhara and Sakyong Mipham, Rinpoche. There will time for a discussion of Vajrayogini practice as well.

Saturday afternoon we will join with other sadhakas in a Vajrayogini feast offering. All Vajrayogini practitioners are invited to participate in the feast.

Please join us if you are doing the recitation of Vajrayogini as your main practice, or are just feeling nostalgic and would like to celebrate your connection to this vibrant mandala.
