Dear Friends!

Now that the county restrictions for group retreats have eased, please join us at WRC for the Ngöndro retreat on Apr 30 – May 2, 2021.

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 of different practices will be provided upon request and there will be a chance to clarify questions on the subject of Ngöndro with traveling teachers in attendance.
