Dear Dharma Friends,
Lama Kalsang has safely arrived in Nepal for a several week stay — while he is traveling our practices are modified. Wednesday evening Yidam practice is on pause until his return and Sunday morning practice will not include Achi Chokyi Drolma.
We will be working on cleaning up the center for Losar immediately following the practices on Saturday Feb. 18 and Sunday Feb. 19. Volunteers are welcome!
Please note: the CDC has listed our community transmission level as low, and masks are optional for our in person practices at the center. We do ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. We will be running the air purifier in the common area. If you are not feeling well, please join us online.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
