Shambhala Vajra Sangha Retreat Patron

Acharya Daniel Hessey

November 2–10, 2018

8 nights

Our Shambhala Vajra Sangha Retreat will be a week-long gathering for Shambhala Vajrayana practitioners of all levels. Senior teachers will guide Ngöndro, Werma, Scorpion Seal and Kurukulla/Jambhala tracks, allowing practitioners of each track to practice and study together. We will also gather as a whole sangha to receive teachings on the view of Vajrayana and what it means to be a Shambhala Vajrayana person.

Join us for an enriching vajrayana community experience, coming together for core path programs and steeping in these teachings and practices as a group in between the trainings. Through the collective engagement of practice, food and conversation, our community can use this opportunity to deepen, strengthen and gain confidence in being a part of the family of Mukpo.

This retreat will fulfill the week-long practice requirements.
