H.E. 4th Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, the second son of the late Great Perfection teacher, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, will transmit a special practice for the Transference of Consciousness to Amitabha Buddha’s Pure Land, renowned in Tibetan as Phowa. This is only the second time that Chokling Rinpoche will be giving this teaching in a large gathering. In the first ever large-scale Phowa retreat in December 2009, due to the blessings of Guru Rinpoche, Chenrezig, Amitayus and all the compassionate lineage masters, all 148 participants from 7 countries displayed the external sign of accomplishment of this profound practice.

I believe the sign they are referring to is when one can stand a stalk of kusha grass on the top of their heads.
