Vajrayogini Four Karmas Fire Offering

With Mark Nowakowski

October 18 - 28, 2018

The Vajrayogini Four Karmas Fire Offering is an advanced vajrayana retreat open to practitioners who have completed the Vajrayogini Amending-the-Mantra Fire Offering.

Through the skillful means of the fire offering, in the Four Karmas practice we begin to engage more fully in all the karmas, or enlightened activities, of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and destroying.

If you who have previously completed a Four Karmas Fire Offering, you may attend all or part of the program.

Arrival : Thursday afternoon, to begin setting up Fire Offering. Please come early if you can.

Departure :  Sunday midday, after clean-up and departure lunch.
