Jigme Lingpa's Severance (cho): Deep Wisdom
September 13, 2019 7:00pm - September 15, 2019 1:00pm

Location to be announced

Available live and via broadcast


The word Cho means to cut or sever.  In this vital and uniquely Tibetan practice, we seek direct encounters with wisdom.  In particular, we cut through our worst fears and obstructions and dissolve them into wisdom.

We sing, we drum, we raise wisdom energy in ourselves and each other.

Ad.zom Rinpoche has given us his framework for empowering Jigme Lingpa's words, and he emphasized the power to Cho to deepen our realization at this time in Dzogchen Cycles.
