2nd Winter Mindfulness Camp for Local Educators

SJI was honored to have 41 teachers, predominantly from Samdrup Jongkhar Dzongkhag, join us for the 2nd annual Lho Mon Education Winter Mindfulness Camp, hosted at Chokyi Gyatso Institute from 20th-26th of December. All participants and staff were particularly fortunate to have Drubgyud Tenzin Rinpoche  attend  and provide daily teachings.

The event provided guided meditation practice to educators and facilitated discussion on the importance of mindfulness in the classroom, both for educators and students. With upwards of 6 hours of meditation a day, it was not an easy week!

From beginning to end, including teachings from Lopon Pema Longdro, walking meditation and karma yoga instruction from Jamyang (a visiting mindfulness practitioner), and discussions with Dasho Neten Zangmo, the camp was a great success.

SJI would like to thank all of our participants, our resource persons, and particularly

Drubgyud Tenzin Rinpoche for guiding us on such an unprecedented endeavor. We're already looking forward to next year!
