I think you practice in the Karma Kagyu lineage, right?
I would see if you can ask your teacher if you can obtain instructions in the common preliminaries, and perhaps the Refuge/prostrations part.....from anyone your teacher feels qualified to dispense those instructions. You don't need an empowerment for those, and I guarantee you that would keep you busy until you have a chance or opportunity to obtain empowerment.

This could be either a good way or a bad way to look at it, depending on how you're looking at it. Hehe.
