                               ~ ATTENDING IN PERSON~
These will be the first in person teachings at the Ewam Pema Khandro Ling center since it closed in early 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic. Depending on interest, we may need to limit the number of in person registrants, so please register early. We are working to ensure good ventilation and moderately spaced seating, in keeping with current health guidelines.  We recognize the special blessings of sitting with Rinpoche and would love to love to see you in person. We rely on you to take your own health considerations into account when deciding whether to attend in person.

After being closed for three years, we will need active participation from students attending in person for all aspects of "producing" a retreat. Please plan either on coming a day early to help with set up or staying until the day after to help with thorough clean up of the center.

In person registrants will receive further information on karma yoga  and on local housing options.
                                 ~ATTENDING ONLINE~
The Zoom link will be available at a later date and will be emailed to online registrants.
Privacy:  Please arrange a situation where you have video capability. Rinpoche strongly prefers to see online students. These teachings must be received in a secluded location where they cannot be viewed or heard by anyone else.  You may not invite anyone who is not registered to attend with you.


Computer and Internet Issues: We need your help to make a successful online retreat! We care about your online experience, but cannot take responsibility for your internet connection or other computer/phone issues. We will be working online before, during and after each session. Please do your part. Please check your internet and Zoom access before the retreat begins and also before each Zoom session. Ask your questions early. Please sign on at least 15 miutes before teaching is scheduled to begin. Late attendance is not permitted, and generally after Rinpoche begins teaching,  you won't be offered admission to a session.

Retreat Recording:  Private recordings are strictly prohibited. Zoom recordings will be available after the retreat.
