Dön Season Retreat

February 25 - 27, 2022

Since 1979, the Dön Season Retreat has been the annual opportunity for Dorje Kasung to re-invigorate their connection to the practice just before the start of the new Shambhala year. Gathering during the Dön Season, a time when obstacles are particularly prevalent, is especially potent for Dorje Kasung because of our connection to the protection principle. It is a powerful time to look into the nature of the discipline and our commitment to the practice.
All Dorje Kasung are warmly invited to join us to participate in this event. Note that this retreat will be entirely self-staffed.
