Scorpion Seal Assembly 1
with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
July 30 / 5:00 PM - August 10 / 6:00 PM
Above Prices Include ALL Meals!
The Scorpion Seal Assembly involves intensive practice of the Werma Sadhana. It is modeled after the traditional drupchen (great accumulation) that is performed in many Buddhist traditions as a way of accomplishing sadhana practice. The retreat environment offers an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of this profound sadhana and receive the innermost teachings of the Shambhala terma, The Scorpion Seal of the Golden Sun, the heart essence of the Druk Sakyong, the Dorje Dradül of Mukpo.
You should only register with Dorje Denma Ling after you have been accepted by the Office of Practice and Education. To attend this Assembly, there are prerequisites, and you must apply to and be approved by the Shambhala Office of Practice and Education. For more information about this process, click here.
