Hevajra Cause Empowerment is normally conducted over 2 days and Path Empowerment is bestowed within a day. The prerequisite of receiving Path Empowerment is Cause Empowerment. In the Sakyapa tradition, there is Sadhana practice commitment after receiving both empowerments.
There is no result empowerment as your final attainment from your practice is the 'result empowerment'.
Th retreat only costs 200 us dollars and you receive 75 back if you go to everyday. Gyana vajra rinpoche will not be attending so there will not be any afternoon teachings.

Payment can be made via paypal and if you send them an email they will send you there paypal account.
Does anyone know details of accommodation etc that would be suitable for attending the Lam Dre? I am in Australia and considering attending this event. I did email the organizers but was only advised of the costs. Any advice would be useful...many thanks!
