Monthly Vajrayana Group Practice and Vajra Circle (Second Saturday, 9:00 – 12:00)

Dear Ones,

Here is the schedule for Saturday’s Vajrayana Group Practice and Circle with the Zoom link below.

We will not be scrolling the texts, so please have your texts and chants ready.

If you do not yet have a copy of Dharmaraja Guru Yoga, please email Walker Blaine and request a digital copy which you may print out and use temporarily until you order one from Kalapa Media.  ([email protected])

If you are attending the Mixed Group Practice (Ngondro, Werma, Scorpion Seal), please RSVP with your practice level so we can create separate rooms if there are two or more practitioners of a level or practice.

If there are no groups of two or more, we will practice in a single mixed group, and you may turn off your video when needed for privacy.

As always, you are welcome to join any or all of the morning practice.

You may contact Faith ([email protected]) for additional info and questions.

Looking forward to practicing joining you in practice and sharing.

August 8, Vajrayana Group Practice and Circle:

9:00 – 10:00:  Opening chants (Shambhala Lineage, 7 Line Supplication, Father, Mother, Windhorse) and Dharmaraja Guru Yoga 

10:10 – 11:25:  Mixed group practice (bring your own text)

11:30 – 12:00:  Vajra Circle check in and sharing and closing chants
