Preparation for Chod - CANCELLED

This course has been cancelled

06 May 2017 -

Cost: £0.00

Venue: Samye Ling

The Chod retreat has been cancelled for this year.  

Although it’s wonderful to have the retreaters together for this beautiful and inspiring practice, many of the retreaters have other commitments so it’s been difficult to bring together all the skilled practitioners needed.

 On the other hand, many people tell us that they can’t manage to come to Samye Ling more than once a year. And since this year is Samye Ling’s 50th Anniversary we hope that everyone will come to join in the celebrations in August. 

There will be the Guru Rinpoche Drupcho (from 21st to 25th August) and the Tea Party and 50th Anniversary Celebration (on Sunday 27th August).

So although we are sorry to have to cancel the Chod we hope it will give the chance for many more people to come in August.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
