Ten Day Initiation Beginning

Starting tomorrow evening, November 3rd, Diamond Mountain will host a ten day Vajrayogini empowerment for those having completed the required studies. If you don't know what "empowerment" or "initiation" means ask me later. From a practical standpoint it means that all the participants will be camping at DM and keeping silence for the duration of the event. Food will be prepared and served by the few and brave non-initiates and all classes will be canceled.

Other than that I can't really say what's going to happen. As many learned from last year's empowerment anything can happen and it's best not to have any preconceptions or expectations. One thing was true for all involved last year, it was a powerful experience. That is all it's safe to expect about the upcoming days.

I'll be sure to post once we emerge. Send good thoughts.
