Yuthok Nyingthig Seven Day Ngöndro Retreat

Livestreamed from Pure Land Farms

January 30th - February 5th, 2023

9am - 1pm Daily (Los Angeles Time Zone)

Ngöndro, meaning ‘foundational' or 'preliminary' practices is the root of the tree out of which all other Vajrayana Buddhist practices grow. Yuthok’s ngöndro, traditionally done in the context of a seven day retreat is incredibly transformative to one's mind, health, and life, and is the gateway into the profound path of the Yuthok Nyingthig. 

This seven day retreat will be livestreamed from Pure Land Farms. The morning session only will be streamed (approximately four hours).
