With community health in mind, we kindly ask that if you are experiencing any signs of illness, Covid or flu, that you self isolate.

Some sessions will require transmission to attend. To receive transmission prior to the SSR consider registering for Dzogchen Teachings with Yeshi Namkha webcast from Merigar West, June 20th to June 27th, 2024 - More info & to sign up for the webcast>>

The SSR will include:

  • Yantra Yoga with Yantra Yoga instructors Paula Barry, Naomi Zeitz and Vicki Sidley
  • A course of the Vajra Dance That Benefits Beings (VDBB)*
  • Teachings and practice sessions with Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo and Santi Maha Sangha instructor Michael Katz
  • A replay of one of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu's retreats (topic to be announced)

*VDBB is a 6 day course of 1 hour sessions taught by authorized Vajra Dance instructors, Carisa and Bodhi. Plan to attend the entire 6 days to learn the dance. VDBB is ideal for newcomers and is open to all who feel drawn to practice Vajra Dance.

For planning purposes please indicate that you are interested and expecting to attend some part of the retreat even if you are not prepared to donate at this time. We plan on broadcasting the replay of one of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu's retreats via Zoom, along with practice sessions (excluding the Long Goma Devi practice and the VDBB). If you are interested in attending via Zoom please indicate when registering.
