Due to COVID-19, the physical space at Dondrubling is closed. This means that all practice activities at the Ling and/or use of the Ling for any purpose is suspended until further notice. The Gakyil will offer updates when the situation changes. We encourage everyone to participate online in Dzogchen Community practices and activities. Many thanks for all your support.
May all beings always be happy and free of suffering!
Many Vajra Sisters and Brothers in our Dzogchen Community have seized this opportunity to work with circumstances in wonderful and remarkable ways. Since most of us are now obliged to stay at home, some are choosing to do a sort of personal retreat or at least to do more individual practices. Although some may feel the loss of the chance to do collective practices together at Dondrubling, there are many opportunities to participate in collective practices online. You are probably already aware of some or all of the following opportunities. Here are some links to just a few of those of which we are aware: (Please visit the websites below for details of dates, times and if registration is required. Some videoconferences require a brief, free download from zoom.us)
Due to the Shelter-In-Place order for the Bay Area, all Dzogchen Community collective group practices and teachings have been suspended indefinitely at our physical location, Dondrubling. However, we WILL be offering Ganapujas via Zoom video conference. (If you have not used Zoom before, please go to zoom.us and follow the instructions to download and run the free software needed to participate.) We are also working on offering other collective practices via Zoom. Please check the practice calendar for up to date details of events coming soon.
