White Dakini Drubchen, including Teaching Days Aug, 5 – 16

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lopön Beth Lee-Herbert

August 5 - 16, 2017

The annual Drubchen (Great Accomplishment Ceremony) of the White Dakini practice from Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Randröl (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, who for the first time will lead the Drubchen as our Vajra Master, according to the wishes of Sang-ngag Rinpoche. We will experience a traditional empowerment given by Lama Tsultrim 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 Lama Tsultrim, Lopön Beth will help frame the experience through discussion and teachings during the first two days (Aug 5-7) of introductory teachings.

Please choose either to register for the introductory teachings and Drubchen (August 5 – 16), or you may register only for Drubchen (August 7 – 16).
