Chopon Training - Werma Sadhana

with Pearl Ubungen
May 26 / 12:00 PM - May 26 / 2:00 PM

"The role of ritual in any good society sustains and fosters the society’s values and culture. In Shambhala, understanding ritual properly, as The Sakyong, Jampal Thrinley Dradül has said, 'creates culture and brings good lungta.' " 
                     Suzann Duquette - Rupa Acharya

Werma practitioners, please join us for this introduction and refresher to the view and practice of the role of Chopon in the Werma Sadhana. All who have received Werma Sadhana transmission are warmly welcomed to attend. If you have not tried these roles yet, this is your chance to taste them.
