Summer Sangha Celebration

Summer Sangha Celebration
On the 40th Anniversary of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s Teaching in Conway


Join us at the Land of the Dakinis, Buckland, MA
Friday afternoon July 8 - Friday July 15


Schedule includes: Replay of 2014 Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Retreat*, 
and Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dancing, Teaching and Practicing Together

SCHEDULE  (subject to change) for the retreat.


Update! Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Retreat Recording: The Four Dharmas of Longchenpa, complete teaching from 2014 at Tsegyalgar East  (Not available on Zoom)

*This practice retreat is open to everyone; we hope anyone without transmission with a sincere interest in these teachings will receive transmission when it is available. Newcomers, please plan to attend entire portion of recorded teachings - as it is a complete retreat and teachings are consecutive.  Replay sessions will be followed by discussion and instruction. These sessions, led by Santi Maha Sangha instructor Lynn Newdome, will expand on each days' teachings to continue to lay a foundation of Dzogchen.

All the teachings will be in an open air environment in the very spacious Vajra Hall. We encourage everyone to take whatever measures you deem right for you to stay healthy.

We invite you to stay the weekend following (July 16 & 17) for Vajra Dance practices. Practices will be in the morning and afternoon at times agreed among the participants.
