When: Friday August 16 - Sunday August 18

Please join us at WRC for a Ngöndro retreat over the weekend of August 16-18.

The Preliminary or Foundational Practices of Diamond Way Buddhism [Tib. Ngöndro] are profound and powerful means for affecting deep positive changes at every level of our being through purifying the negative karma and accumulating the good impressions and wisdom.

The explanations for different practices are always provided upon request and there is usually a Q&A panel with traveling teachers in attendance on the subject of Ngöndro.
