Sherab Chamma, the Wisdom Loving Mother, is the embodiment of loving compassion.
As an enlightened deity, she manifests in many different forms according to the needs of practitioners.
The eight manifestations that are the focus of this series of meditations are all peaceful forms that help us overcome and transform different types of struggles and fears, such as challenges with enemies, fears of illness, struggles with the unknown, and the fear of death.
Through the power of Sherab Chamma’s wisdom and love, our fears are transformed into self arising wisdom and we are able to creatively embrace the many challenges of our lives.

This is a unique opportunity to directly experience the Five Elements teachings among the high pristine alpine meadows, lakes, dunes, streams and peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Wilderness. After the great popularity of this event last year, we are expanding it so that it is accessible to people of all physical abilities. We will have one group led by Peter May that will go to North Crestone Lake at higher altitude, and a second group led by John Jackson that will work with the practices at sites surrounding Chamma Ling.

Geshe Nyima Kunchap will be visiting Crestone from Dolpo, Nepal, land of ancient Zhang Zhung and Bön, concluding a series of teachings of the Red Garuda
The archetype of the person who rises above all obstacles and obscurations, transforms themselves into an eagle and soars through the sky is found in many cultures throughout the world. In the Bön tradition, the Garuda holds a special position of importance and reverence as an enlightened yidam, a wisdom being who emanates in forms of each of the five elements. The Red Garuda is associated with the fire element, and the wrathful wisdom that overcomes all obstacles and brings healing, protection, and positive transformation to all beings.
