Yay, a whole week of being allowed to post what Gregkavarnos doesn't like (but no one else minds :tongue: ).

Greg, I'm so pleased that you are able to go on your retreat, and that the DW group is just so damned awesome! I also look forward to 10 days of glorious mayhem in your absence!

I was out all weekend at a computer competition thing (defcon capture-the-flag qualifier) and didn't remember about this til today.
Any way I can still kick in some extra spend money?
I don't see you on the page, am I missing something?

I have been AWOL too for the last couple of weeks, so have been unaware of this project.

I am very pleased to read that Greg got to go to his retreat. I will be sure to take part next next year when I have a few more funds.

Thank you everyone for contributing. It is very heartening to see such goodwill in action over the internet. All the best, Greg.

Back again! I just wanted to thank everybody once again for all their help. It was an excellent seminar and I came away with a ton of new techniques to torment my "students" with this fall. I also managed to receive instructions for a practice I have been itching to do for some time now and was tutored in the music offerings for my daily dharmapala practice.

Here are some photos from the retreat:

Tsok Offerings

Image
Tsok practice with the gang: Venerable Lama Daphne, Lama Lhundrup/Tilmann, Lama Maria, Kostas (one of the gang that built the original retreat complex 20 years ago) and yours-truly singing up a storm.

Image
Fire chopen for the Riwo Sang Cho practice. I warned them about letting me play with matches!

Image
Torma offerings for the Dharmapalas. I refuse to make tormas since the time my Greek teacher, Lama Giorgos, made me make 100 shal say tormas (in one day) as an offering to Tara. After that torma overdose, I go into immediate aversion mode as soon as I see somebody carrying iced water and butter!

Thank you again to all those that donated, or wanted to donate but could not.
