  • The empowerment begins at 6pm on Friday, November 16th, and while attendance is recommended, it is not required in order to participate in the Drupchen
  • If you plan on staying overnight, you will want to bring your own bedding or sleeping bag and towels, and plan on staying in dorm-style accommodations or camping
  • Since the Drupchen continues without interruption both Friday and Saturday nights, we could use your help with the late night sessions! 
  • Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday, dinner on Saturday, and breakfast items will be available for self-service each morning

Venerable Drupon Thinley Ningpo returns November 16th through 18th for our annual Chenrezig Drupchen!  We will begin the weekend with a Chenrezig Empowerment on Friday evening, followed by a 24-hour practice over three days with multiple sessions per day.  Attending the empowerment is not required, and practitioners may attend all or part of the Drupchen practice.

Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.  Whenever we are compassionate, or feel love for anyone, or for an animal or some part of the natural world, we experience a taste of our own natural connection with Chenrezig. Although we may not be as consistently compassionate as some of the great meditation masters, Tibetan Buddhists believe that we all share, in our basic nature, unconditional compassion and wisdom that is no different from what we see in Chenrezig.

Drupchen means vast accomplishment and is a form of intensive group practice.  This practice will continue night and day through three days, ending Sunday, November 18th at 5pm.  Participants will be welcome to practice though the entire weekend or drop in for one or more sessions.
