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.

Due to the Shelter-In-Place order for the Bay Area, all collective group practices and teachings have been suspended for three weeks. However, Dondrubling WILL be offering Ganapujas via Zoom video conference.
