Dakini’s Whisper Members

Are Invited To

An End-of-Year Purification Retreat and Sangha Gathering

in Conjunction with Dakini Day and Lama Tsongkhapa Day


Seasons and years pass one by one; it is the natural order of this elemental world. Humans often mark these transitions with remembrances, appreciations, celebrations and rituals. In spite of many challenges, personal and global, Dakini’s Whisper has continued to strive to offer teachings, retreats, transmissions, empowerments and group practices that benefit students at all levels. This is, of course, due to the efforts of DW members working together and supporting DW throughout this year.


Please join Khandro-la and fellow Dakini’s Whisper members at a 2-day Purification Retreat and Sangha Gathering, Tuesday, December, 28, 10am-6pm, PST, and Wednesday, December 29, 10am-7pm, PST, for an opportunity to practice together, deepening our commitments and enriching our paths, as well as to gather together as a sangha for reflection and celebration. With an emphasis on purification, devotion, appreciation, praise and dedication of our aspirations, we will gather for teachings, transmissions, and practices and close with a celebration of Tsok Feast Offering and Sangha heart connections and reflections. This will be an opportunity to express your gratitude to our dedicated teacher, Khandro-la, by contributing your unique talents in whatever form (i.e. composing a poem, dancing, singing) during Tsok.


PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR! Below is a detailed schedule. We encourage you to join all the sessions as this special retreat is intended to honor your 2021 journey and invigorate your arrival into 2022 as well as to offer dedicated practice time together. However, you are welcome to join any of the sessions as your time does allow. Please try not to miss the last session on December 29. which will include our annual Sangha gathering and celebration together.
