Fundraising Kickoff for Tsegyalgar West

baja-3It is with great enthusiasm we are organizing the visit of Migmar Tsering, Yushan Zhong and several volunteers to Tsegyalgar West for the decoration of the painting of the Gompa of our Gar.

The visit of Migmar is a good opportunity to make an effort not only for having the Gompa painted but to complete the structure, in particular make doors and windows for the building and buy furniture and equipment for the interiors.

We invite you to join us to make this project possible during the month of April 2017.

We are in full campaign of collection of the necessary funds for this project. We have already raised enough for the invitation of the Tibetan artists and for the preparation of the Gompa for the painting and we are receiving more participation every day that makes us confident for the completion of the project

You can join the campaign donating on TW webpage: (specify: Donation Gompa)

You may pay online, by check or money order, or at a later date.

Beginner Course of the Dance of the Song of the Vajra

Beginner Course of the
Vajra Dance of the Song of the Vajra

with Bodhi Krause

at Dondrubling in Berkeley, CA, USA
March 18 – 26, 2017


2 weekends with sessions during weeknight evenings
Saturdays and Sundays: 10am to 1pm   and   4 to 7pm
Monday thru Friday: 6-9pm

The Dance of the Vajra is a result of the profound meditation of the Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.

In the Dzogchen teaching the Vajra is a symbol of our essential nature, which is pure, clear and immutable like a diamond.

Practicing the Dance of the Vajra one can discover this real nature by being in the state of contemplation; and one can learn to maintain and stabilize this knowledge not only in sitting meditation but also being in movement. In this way it can become part of our daily life.

The “Dance of the Song of the Vajra” is a complex, symbolic dance connected particularly to the energetic aspect of our existence.

Through their sound, all the syllables of the Song of the Vajra are linked to specific energy points within our inner mandala, our body, and our outer mandala, the external dimension of the world.

Through sound, color and movement we can coordinate these energy points and create a harmonizing communication on the level of subtle energy
