From July 31 – August 7, 2011, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Losang Jampa will lead the annual intermediate summer retreat at Namgyel Monastery in Ithaca, NY. The retreat will be held at Light on the Hill Retreat Center, Van Etten, NY.
The event description says,
“During this week-long retreat, students will participate in four sessions each day with guidance in the practice of Kalachakra six-session guru yoga, visualization, mantra recitation, and will receive teachings on the paths and grounds.
As in the preliminary retreat, the Kalachakra Retreat will be characterized by individual attention from the monks of the Dalai Lama’s own personal monastery, with opportunities each day for students to ask questions about their own personal practice from both the Namgyal monks and the head teacher, Gyumed Khansur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa.”
Details and registration are available on the Namgyal Monastery website.
What a perfect follow-up to the Kalachakra initation with His Holiness in D.C.! I can’t think of a better way to get started on the Kalachakra practice.
