Instruction and practice in a retreat setting

Attendence to the annual Ngondro Spring Retreat is encouraged and required at least once over the course of the program.

During these Ngondro retreats Lama Sonam Rinpoche, Lama Gyaltsen Rinpoche, Aychara Sam Berholtz, and other selected teachers will discuss the meaning behind each practice of the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro. The lamas, along with senior students, will also give practical how-to instructions on each of the segments. There will be time for group accumulation practice with senior students or individual practice sessions if desired.
