September 21st, 2011:

Kyabjé Kalu Rinpoché has just concluded a series of well-received teachings in Vancouver & Salt Spring Island. This is the tail-end of his first tour of North America since completing his three-year retreat and assuming his responsibility as head of the Shangpa Lineage. Rinpoche will leave Canada next week.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to the many people who volunteered and to those who showed up to the teachings and public talks in Vancouver and Ganges.
