A gathering of Dorje Kasung to stabilize and strengthen our understanding of the fundamental view, fundamental practice and fundamental activity of Dorje Kasungship through the lens of natural wakefulness, basic being, and the teachings of the Trident text.
This weekend program will emphasize contemplation of the Essential Heart of Kasungship teachings, with opportunities for Magyal Pomra Encampment veterans to deepen and continue their study of the Trident text. All will receive and engage in practices for their level of study, all towards stabilizing strategy and tactics appropriate to the time.
