The monks from the Gaden Shartse monastery are still on their celebrated Sacred Earth and Healing Arts Tour in the United States. Good News! They will be in Grand Junction, Colorado during the week of July 15th through the 20th. During this time they will conduct a number of organized and hosted events, including: healing and cleansing empowerments, meditation training, and a one day retreat, during which skills that we learned during the week can be practiced. As always, these events are open to the public. There will also be opportunities to have personal healings, house blessings, and business blessings. A full schedule, venues for the events, and further information will be available soon. In the meanwhile please visit the Gaden Shartse Cultural Foundation website at http://www.gadenshartsecf.org/ .
