This is the info i've found: "The current Dharma Gar – Europe group of participants started December 2008. The Dharma Gar - North America group started February 2010. If you are interested in joining future Dharma Gar groups (most likely starting 2012), please contact arne.schelling(at)gmx.de"
I also heard that there is another program starting soon, which is based on Student Manual written by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (the old version of Student Manual is not available at the moment but the new version is forthcoming) It starts with some study period and then goes thru the Ngondro but there is no time commitment. You can hear more about it in Rinpoche's podcast "Advice on Ngöndro" http://www.siddharthasintent.org/2009/0 ... ondro.html
Disdaining the lower and unable to grasp the higher,
talking of emptiness, such a person will neglect cause and effect,
mouthing on about the view while in a state of self-deception.
It would be better to concentrate on the gradual path.
