Winter Term Dates

That's right, this term begins on a Friday.
Prior to the term beginning, Geshe Michael and Christie will be giving a Star in the East teaching in Tucson from January 4th to the 6th. The talk is intended for a Christian audience, but Diamond Mountain people are welcome.

New Look, New Info
The term ended two weeks ago and things have really quieted down at Diamond Mountain. This past week Venerable Elly began leading a Lam Rim retreat (daily schedule). Each day they have four meditation sessions, a yoga session, some rest time, and meals. I've been hearing great things. It is an open retreat and anyone who wishes can join in for a part, even a single meditation for just one day. She's really leaving it open.
Some work is being done on the land too. The bagged earth house is getting finished. And Bliss just completed an amazing painting at Jamyang House (the main classroom/temple). Pictures soon.
