Vajrayogini Weekend Magnetizing Fire Offering 2019

With Andrea Doukas

May 3 - 5, 2019

Open to Vajrayogini sadhakas who have completed an Amending Fire Offering, this is a rare opportunity to engage in fire-offering practice for a weekend.

Twelve years ago, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche gave us his blessing and permission to do this practice as a “rite-of-aid” for Dorje Denma Ling, Shambhala, and the entire world, and we have been doing so twice a year: Magnetizing in the spring, and Enriching in the fall. 

For Magnetizing, we are attracting and gathering all good things, especially magnetizing the awake relationship between dharma teachers and students. This is a chance to deepen our practice, where everyone participates in the leadership roles of loppön, umdze, and chöpön. Please join us in this budding spring season for a powerful weekend practice.

Cost: $100 plus accommodations. For details, see the Registration page.

Arrival : Friday Afternoon to set up Fire Offering    Dinner: 6:30pm

Departure :  Sunday afternoon after clean-up… around 5pm
