This week will embrace the practice of rousing and communicating with drala both formally through Werma practice and in daily life. The refined setting of Casa Werma and the nearby Tzintzuntzan, where the Dorje Dradul went on the day he received the Werma Sadhana are accessible places with which to explore what exactly it means to call on the dralas. If you have SSA requirements the container will accommodate your doing your personal practice, and special SSA break outs will occur.
Retreat at Casa Werma offers:
- Stroke practice at the table where the Dorje Dradul wrote the Werma Sadhana
- Lush drala gardens
- A visit to the nearby archeological site, Tzintzuntzan (“the place of the hummingbird”),
- the ruins where both Sakyongs have performed lhasangs
- a courtyard filled with “the oldest olive trees in the New World”
- Local artisans in pottery, ceramics, wood-carving, embroidery, and reed-weaving.
This retreat is for werma practice only. Retreatants will receive a list of practice and study materials to bring. Please let us know soon if you are native Spanish language speaker so that we can arrange an interpreter for you.
