Structured Meditation Practice Support

  • Members wishing to begin Ngondro – preliminary practices that are a pre-requisite for further Vajrayana/Tantric practices – will be provided with support and guidance when applying to begin Ngondro practice. This will include E-Vam providing the required refuge and initiation ceremony as well as practice instructions.
  • Support will be made available for anyone continuing their Ngondro practices who would like some support or assistance. 
  • Retreat advice and practice instructions –  guidance on approaches to practice and solo retreats will be provided upon request inline with Traleg Rinpoche’s instructions.


All Associate Members are encouraged to participate in Centres activities including helping out at working bees and other volunteering whenever possible. This is an expectation in particular for those participating in Ngondro practices and The Meditation & Teachings Quarterly Series.
