White Dakini Drubchen, including Teaching Days, July 30 – August 10

With Drubpön Lama Karma, Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lopön Beth Lee-Herbert M.A., L.M.H.C.

July 30 - August 10, 2019

The annual Drubchen (Great Accomplishment Ceremony) of the White Dakini practice from Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Rangdröl (Self-Liberation from Fixation) treasure cycle will be performed at Tara Mandala. This lineage comes directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche to Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche to Lama Tsultrim Allione. We will experience a traditional empowerment and we will be led through an in-depth process of learning and practicing the White Dakini mandala. This practice is the union of Machig Labdrön and Yeshe Tsogyel surrounded by the dakinis of the five families. In addition to precious teachings from Drüpon Lama Karma and Lama Tsultrim, Lopön Beth will help frame the experience through discussion and teachings during the first two days (July 30-August 1) of introductory teachings.

The use of dharma attire is requested.

This retreat is open to all.
