Dear NyingmaNet Friends,
On August 21 we started a new series of seven NyingmaNet sessions, running through November 13, 2020. These will occur every two weeks from now on, not once a week. During the August 21 session, we heard about the fire dangers in Sonoma County and about Jack Petranker’s upcoming TSK Intensive. Jack also led a TSK practice. Morgan Wells demonstrated the new Nyingma Mandala website and Abbe Blum interviewed Bea Fleck about the Nyingma Group in Porto Alegre, Brasil, which is in the process of becoming an authorized center. We concluded with the Vajra Armour chant led by Claudio Moraes.
We’re also grateful to announce that the community was swift and generous after sharing our need for donations last session. Within days we received over $400 in donations, which covers our broadcasting and subscription fees. We will be using additional funds in website development for the Nyingma Mandala website and other cross-organizational initiatives. Thank you!
Please join us again for NyingmaNet #9 on Friday, September 4.
8.00-8.45am in California 12.00-12.45pm in Brazil
5.00-5.45pm in Europe 8.30-9.15pm in India
Please also invite friends, family or neighbors new to Nyingma to join NyingmaNet. We would love to see the community of people that benefit from these timeless wisdom teachings grow!
