Creating a Sacred Environment when Attending Online Teachings

Rinpoche has urged all of us who attend teachings online to see the time and place when and where we are participating as sacred. In essence, his instruction is to be present as if we were in the shrine room with him and the assembly. Here are some helpful tips to establish your environment.

  • Before the weekend begins, prepare your personal space. Choose an area or room in your home from which to listen to the teachings.
  • Because we are using technology to broadcast this retreat, please make sure you have good internet reception in your retreat area. Turn off cell phones, iPads, radio, TV, and any other device that may be distracting.
  • If members of your household are not participating in the teachings, you may want to share the retreat schedule with them and request their support for your practice.
  • Keep a clear intention not to get distracted by home issues, leave early or multitask while participating online.

Technical Trouble?

If you have a technical question or problems please be kind and patient and visit this page to get support. Support will be offered before and after the teachings.

During the weekend, minimal technical support is offered. While we are doing all we can to ensure that everything goes smoothly, we appreciate your patience with any unforeseen technical glitches. Our heartfelt intention is to bring the teachings to you in the most easeful way possible. Please do remember that we are not a professional customer service department when you interact with the students who serve in this capacity.

Teacher’s Gift

Traditionally a monetary offering is made at the end of a program, presented directly to the teacher in an envelope, along with a khata, or white scarf.

With virtual program attendance, we wanted to find a way to facilitate an offering to allow the same avenue for the student to express their gratitude to the teacher in a direct way. We acknowledge the tendril or connection that this creates and want to provide a pathway for those who wish to participate.

We have set up access points below for each teacher which go directly to their own personal fund, in order to allow the most direct path for the teacher’s gift.

As an alternative to an electronic monetary gift, you are welcome to send a check to the address listed. Please ensure that the check is made out in the teacher’s name (listed directly above the address).

If you prefer, you may send a check payable to:
