Annual Work-Week and Right Speech Teachings

Lama Kunzang Drolma and Ani Marcia Hansen

May 25 - June 3

There is no charge for participation. Food and lodging are provided.

Please join us for our Annual Work Week. With several construction and beautification projects underway, as well as the expectation of busy months soon upon us, we’ll require as many hands as we can to build, clean, and plant our way into a beautiful summer.

This will also be an opportunity to receive teachings on “Right Speech,” (the third aspect of the Noble Eightfold Path) with Gomde California’s resident nuns, Lama Kunzang and Ani Marcia. They will offer teachings in the evenings, reminding us to remain mindful of our own speech and the speech of others, teaching us how to integrate right speech into the fabric of our daily lives, and showing us how our voices can immediately enhance the lives of those around us.

Please feel free to join us for all or part of the Work Week period, and contribute your time and energy to Gomde with resident staff, students, and sangha members this summer. There is no charge for participation. Food and lodging are provided.

Let us know if you’re coming, at gomdebssp@gmail.com.
