A Message from the Tsegyalgar East Gakyil

Tsegyalgar: End of Year Donation

Dear Tsegyalgar East Members & Friends,

On behalf of the Tsegyalgar East Gakyil, we Thank You for your generosity and collaboration during and throughout 2015!

In the spirit of the coming holidays, we are also writing to encourage your continued generosity. Your participation was, and still is, the lifeline of our precious Gar. It is your participation that allows us all to continue and sustain Rinpoche's Dzogchen Teachings in North America.

It’s been an incredible and awesome year! Here are some of the events we’ve held in 2015 at Tsegyalgar East:
  • July 2015 Retreat with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu; more than 300 practitioners participated in person, and more than 1,750 globally joined Rinpoche’s Teaching via webcast!
  • More than 75 practitioners participated in advanced Vajra Dance courses with Prima Mai, Bodhi Krause, Kyu Kyuno, Carisa Kelly.
  • Many Yantra Yoga courses have been held, at the Gar, and in other locations, including a series of open courses with Naomi Zeitz in New Mexico and Colorado.
  • Many SMS courses, including level base, level 1, and level 2 courses with Jim Valby; and the recent Demystifying Santi Maha Sangha course of study with Lynn Newdome (which was also made available via podcast).
  • Continued concentrated work and progress on alignment with the International Dzogchen Community (IDC).
  • Major overhauls and improvements with our internal accounting and financial bookkeeping, which has allowed for more transparency and clarity on our money situation.
  • With the help of our wonderful Geko and other local practitioners near and at the Gar, we’ve been able to make some essential and efficient Schoolhouse repairs, which have dramatically reduced operating expenses.
  • We had the good fortune of Nina Robinson’s very recent presence and leading of a well attended Mandarava teaching and practice retreat at the Gar.
Anticipation, enthusiasm, & excitement is growing as we actively plan for an awesome summer 2016 Summer Celebration on the Land of the Dakinis! More to come soon about this and many other exciting courses to be offered....
Any donation is not too small and incredibly welcome and appreciated. Forgo that holiday drink at Starbucks and donate $5! Rejoice in our continued presence and offer a donation as substantial as you can muster!
All is welcome, no amount is too small, your generosity is helpful, appreciated, and needed for our continued livelihood and presence and continuation.
