UPDATE: The weekend was a success! See photos here

We need your help!

Come up Memorial Weekend 2011, May 27 - 30, and help the monks-in-residence prepare the center for the summer retreat. Van transportation from New York City, food, and accommodations provided as a thanks for your help.

Activities will include gardening, planting flowers, dorm cleaning, kitchen set-up and more. If we're lucky, it won't rain and we'll be able to enjoy beautiful weather! Even if it does rain, we'll have plenty to do indoors. Do be sure to bring warm clothes for the evening as it can cool down this time of year to the low 40s at night.

UPDATE ON WEATHER:
- Expecting sun and thunderstorms (both!)
- Expecting temperatures to reach 80s in the day; 60s at night

We will also have the opportunity to practice in the morning in the temple with Dorje Lopon Lama Sochuk, a Tibetan monk who has completed the 3-year retreat and is authorized by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche to care for the upstate temple practice in the off-season and to lead the highest Dzogchen practices.
