HYBRID: Padmadakini Kurukulla Retreat - Weekend Only

with Eric Spiegel
November 5 / 12:00 AM - November 7 / 12:00 AM

This listing is for the weekend only of the week long Padmakini Kurukulla Retreat.

Registration is now open

One of the most renowned feminine deities of the Vajrayana mandala is Kurukulla, a beautiful dakini dating back to the Hevajra-tantra of India.  An emanation of Tara, she is known for her powers of magnetizing auspicious conditions and blessings for the path, and for preventing obstacles with her flames of passion.  Karme Choling recently received a beautiful Kurukulla rupa, and we are delighted to welcome her with our offerings and intention.

This retreat will be a hybrid in-person/online practice intensive.  Although there will be some teaching, the emphasis will be on engaging with Padmadakini through practice and offerings, including daily outdoor lhasangs in the meadow for the in-person sangha.  The remote retreat will be flexible for partial day participation.  

This program is a complement to the three month study series, Yeshe Tsögyal and the Feminine Principle. Those who are registered for the full three month series, receive a significant tuition discount for this retreat. Contact our front desk at [email protected] for more information.
