More Space Now Available for Mahamudra Practice Intensive #1—Sign Up For Our Auxiliary Option Now
Although Mahamudra Practice Intensive #1 is currently full, we have received permission to reopen registration to accommodate the demand for participation. There will be an auxiliary shrine room set up with live streaming video from morning to evening. This includes guided meditation sessions with Acharya Lama Tenpa Gyaltsen, Mahamudra talks by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, and all practice sessions that occur throughout the day. In this way, the auxiliary shrine room will mirror the Mahamudra program as it happens in the main shrine room. The auxiliary shrine room is located in a different area of the campus in a beautiful old building. This option is available at a reduced cost. For more information, visit our Mahamudra Practice Intensive webpage. If you have any questions, please contact our summer registrar Ben Mikolaj at email@example.com.
