This cycle of empowerments were first gathered and transmitted as a set by the Twenty-fourth Throne-holder, Rikzin Chökyi Drakpa (Drikung Dharmakirti), the First Kyabgön Chungtsang (1595-1659).
Venue: Lhundrup Gomkhang, Moorefiled, West Virginia, USA.

1) Closest airport is Dulles International Airport in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area. We will have two pickups for July 9 and one drop-off on July 21. Let us know if you need a ride from the airport to Moorefield. The ride is about 2 hours.
2) The location of this special program is a private retreat home of students of His Holiness and it is in a gated community (Ashton Woods) in the mountains of West Virginia. We have to therefore limit the number of vehicles entering the community. We will be running shuttles daily from the town of Moorefield to the location.
[Attendance is limited to only 60 participants and participants have to be able to attend all 11 days of the complete cycle in order to attend.]
