KCC’s First One Year Retreat Has Begun
With great joy KCC began its first One Year Retreat on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Lama Tsang Tsing of Eugene led the formal gate sealing ceremony that marked the start to this cloistered retreat. For the next year, the retreatants will engage in the practices of Bokar Rinpoche’s Mahamudra Program under the direction of KCC’s Resident Lama, Michael Conklin.
