Retreat Schedule
Saturday, August 11th
10am - Noon: Kurukulle Empowerment
Kurukulle (or Skt. Kurukulla; Tib. Rig Yed Ma) is an empowerment that is rarely given.
This deity is a form of Red Tara and carries the energy of attracting and magnetizing.
All Tibetan Buddhist practices are done with Bodhicitta- with the motivation to bring benefit to all. One can invoke Kurukulle to bring about world peace or for personal reasons such as winning a job, influencing one's boss, or creating passion or controling emotions such as lust.
2pm - 5pm: Rainbow Body Healing Chöd
Rinpoche will offer the Healing Chod to heal all varieties of illness
and to remove the karmic obstacles to spiritual growth.
This ceremony is open to both Buddhist and non-Buddhists.
The Healing Chöd is suitable for everyone, including those with either mild or chronic illnesses. Music, prayers, and mantras in the sacred sounds of Sanskrit and Tibetan will be offered; transformative mudras, offerings, and meditation will cut through destructive emotions and repel negative energies and obstacles. Bring a yoga mat or pillow to lie on, relax and receive the healing!

Saturday Schedule
9am | Shrine room is open for meditation during Rinpoche's self-empowerment
10am - Noon | Kurukulle empowerment
Noon - 2pm | Lunch break
2pm - 5pm | Healing Chöd
Suggested Donation. Scroll down to Registration Details.
No one will be turned away!

Sunday, August 12th
10am - Noon: Milarepa Empowerment
Rinpoche will bestow this empowerment to connect deeply with Tibet's
great saint, Milarepa, who attained perfect enlightement in only one
lifetime after having committed the negative deeds of killing 35 people.
He then took the teachings seriously and to heart and after 12 years of practicing,
attained complete enlightenment. If he could do it, so can we! :)
2pm - 5pm: Yogic Teachings on Milarepa's 100,000 Songs
Join us for yogic teachings from a yogic master on Milarepa's 100,000 songs.
We have copies of this Buddhist classic for sale in our Dharma shop at a special price
of only $40 (originally $50) during the retreat.

Sunday Schedule
9am | Shrine room is open for meditation during Rinpoche's self-empowerment
10am - Noon | Milarepa empowerment
Noon - 2pm | Lunch break
2pm - 5pm | Yogic teachings on Milarepa's 100,000 songs
