Postponed BARDO WEEKEND RETREAT
Lhoppon Rinpoche will be training people according to the Bardo Thodrol Tradition. Rinpoche received from his own beloved Gurus direct teachings & firsthand experience in this tradition.
People who have taken this training will better understand the true meaning of their practice. They will become more organized about their meditation & practice. They will be in a position to better provide assistance for their family and friends.
