Vajra Sangha Retreat

With Pema Khandro

October 16, 2021

The Annual Vajra Sangha retreat is an opportunity for practice, study and community celebration for the long-term students of Pema Khandro who have been enrolled in Vajra Sangha membership. The retreat includes dharma teachings, Vajrayana and Dzogchen practices, dharma conversations, community workshops and discussion groups and more. This year the retreat takes place online due to the pandemic.

Vajra Sangha are the long-term personal students of Pema Khandro who are eligible for private teachings and advanced training. The Vajra Sangha functions in a warm, closely connected community, based on long-term friendships, mutual respect, and appreciation. It is an association of serious practitioners who do in-depth study and service, who are also able to be light-hearted together and celebrate life. It is a community of leaders rather than a community of followers since advanced Buddhist study requires a willingness to take responsibility for one’s life and be willing to care for our world. Vajra Sangha Retreats are open to Vajra Sangha Members only. Members are accepted through an extensive application process in order to keep the group limited to serious, long-term students of Pema Khandro who are eligible to participate as Vajra Sangha.
