Precious Opportunity: Chöd Conference Follow-up Retreats – July, 2017

Chöd Conference Follow-up Retreats - July 18-23, 2017

Did you know there are Follow-up Chöd Practice Retreats for our Historic First International Chöd Conference in July? Enhance your Conference experience by joining one of these rare retreat offerings.

The Chöd Conference itself will be an intimate and immersive environment in which to learn more about the ancient Tibetan practice of Chöd, with an unparalleled gathering of teachers and practitioners. After the conference you can stay at Tara Mandala for a “follow-up” Chöd retreat, to experience more in depth either of these deeply transformative Chöd practices:

  • • The Ear-Whispered Lineage of Ganden Chöd Retreat with Kunze Chimed and Chöying Khandro, M.A.
  • • Tibetan Healing Chöd with Drüpon Lama Karma.

We hope you can join us for one of these precious opportunities on July 18-23. For more information about these retreats and teachers, please see below.
