We are pleased to announce that in early June our beloved teacher, Khenpo Lodro Donyo Rinpoche, will return to Portland to offer teachings and to preside over the gate opening ceremonies celebrating the completion of KCC's Three Year Retreat at our retreat center Ser Cho Osel Ling. We are very grateful that Rinpoche will be taking time from his many responsibilities and come half way around the world to officiate and offer teachings.

Rinpoche's teachings in Portland will follow the theme of how the Dharma provides us the means to fruitfully work with adversity in our ordinary lives. Listening to Rinpoche’s teachings will help us see how difficult circumstances are not only workable, they are precisely the means for attaining full release from the causes of suffering. His presence at the gate opening ceremonies will help us celebrate honoring our commitment to Bokar Rinpoche to build our retreat center and complete the Three Year Retreat.

Explorations on the Path of Mahamudra: a Bimonthly Gathering to Support Learning and Practice

Fourth Class:  July 14, 9:30-12:00pm

This six-part series will include practical instruction, background teachings and opportunities for group practice and dialogue for those who are engaged in the Karma Kagyu Ngondro (“Foundation" Practices) and other practices of the Mahamudra Seminar Program. The teachings will make the practices accessible to new practitioners and challenge experienced practitioners to find new depth.  I would specifically request that long time practitioners consider taking part in this year’s program to add momentum to our community of practice. Over the years many people have started the Mahamudra Program and the move into our new home is a wonderful opportunity to reinvigorate our collective practice energy.
