This Vajra Dance course is for beginners and also is suitable for those who wish to review and refresh their practice. It is the first in a series of at least two courses required to learn this practice; dates for Part II will be announced later this spring.
We will meet from 9:30am to 5:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday, on the third and fourth weekends of January 2024.
To participate it is necessary to have received the Dzogchen transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu or Yeshi Namkhai.
For more information about Vajra dances, see the International Dzogchen Community’s website, vajradance.net:
“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.”
To reserve your spot on the mandala, please register by Monday, January 8, 2024. Also, we would appreciate either full payment or an initial payment by this date. No one turned away for lack of funds. If finances are an issue, please contact us at 510-644-2260 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

We accept PayPal and Zelle. Be sure to add January 2024 Vajra Dance Course in the memo field.
