Kurukulla Intensive Retreat

with Mark Duggan
November 10 / 4:00 PM - November 17 / 10:00 AM

Shambhala Kurukulla practitioners are warmly invited to attend this autumn’s Kurukulla practice intensive at Dechen Chöling.

This year, the retreat will be dedicated to magnetising kindness into the community and whatever will aid in the protection of the Shambhala lineage and its teachings. During the retreat we will emphasize mantra recitation. We will have sessions focusing on practice instruction, with discussion and will also include playback of talks by the Sakyong.

To attend this programme you must be a Shambhala Werma or Vajrayogini practitioner who has received the Kurukulla empowerment and practice from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

It is fine to join the intensive for a few sessions or only some of the days. We will open and close the sadhanas at every practice, so attending one session will be complete in itself. Even if you are not attending the full intensive, your presence is a great support to DCL.


Arrival day (November 10): You're invited to come from 4 pm in order to register and settle in your room. Dinner is served at 6.45 pm. Orientation talk at 8 pm.

End of programme (November 16): Banquet in the evening.

Departure day (November 17): You may leave anytime (no programme). You're welcome to stay for lunch.

This programme is taught in English. Free translation into French or other languages to be confirmed. Important: Translation services are possible only if you register your request at least two months in advance of the programme.
