This is a unique opportunity to directly experience the Five Elements teachings among the high pristine alpine meadows, lakes, dunes, streams and peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Wilderness.

- September 19-21: The Eight Manifestations of Sherab Chamma with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
Sherab Chamma, the Wisdom Loving Mother, is the embodiment of loving compassion. As an enlightened deity, she manifests in many different forms according to the needs of practitioners.
The eight manifestations that are the focus of this series of meditations are all peaceful forms that help us overcome and transform different types of struggles and fears, such as challenges with enemies, fears of illness, struggles with the unknown, and the fear of death.
Through the power of Sherab Chamma’s wisdom and love, our fears are transformed into self arising wisdom and we are able to creatively embrace the many challenges of our lives. Learn more at Colorado.ligmincha.org
