To prepare for the initiation, I suggest you read Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 of my book, Simply Being. These chapters are being made available for you on my website. You can also strengthen your connection with the practice by reading my book Lotus Source and the book Being Guru Rinpoche, which has been translated into French, German, Polish and Spanish.
Each stage of the initiation will be explained so that you can participate fully. Traditionally initiations were given face to face. In these challenging times we will make use of Zoom. We must all trust the power of Padmasambhava to ensure that we are authentically empowered to do the practice.
This is a rare opportunity and so if you wish to receive the empowerment you need to make arrangements to attend for the entire two days.
The practice text will be available for you to download after the main initiation on Saturday.
Reading material to help you prepare for the initiation is being added here as it becomes available.
