May 24 - June 4

We are looking to reschedule this program to Fall 2020. Please check back or watch your email for program updates.

[Staffing Application now open]

Participants who have completed the Scorpion Seal Assemblies Year 1-5 are encouraged to gather for Scorpion Seal Assembly Year 6. Modelled after the traditional drupchen - great accumulation - this retreat will focus on intensive group practice of the Werma Sadhana and other practices received. Reading transmissions essential to the Scorpion Seal path will also be given.


Participants are asked to fully accomplish the number of required sessions from Scorpion Seal 5 before attending this assembly. Participants are also asked to please not attend more than one Scorpion Seal Assembly per program season.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Karmê Chöling strives to meet the housing requests of everyone attending Scorpion Seal Assemblies. Due to limited room and dorm space at both the main house and Ashoka Bhavan, priority goes to program staff, and people with physical limitations who have made arrangements well in advance.
If you fit into one of these categories, please email guestservices@karmecholing.org

Scorpion Seal Assemblies are self-staffed. At Scorpion Seal Assembly 6, staff positions are open to both first time and repeat participants.
