¡Viva LA Karma Yoga! Viva Mexico & our West Coast Gar!
•Free Travel Scholarship•

The land in Baja was recently damaged by hurricane Odile. Much work needs to be done before Rinpoche's upcoming retreat in mid December.

The Los Angeles Dzogchen Community would like to support a community member who is committed to contributing to the clean up and reconstruction of the Gar.

We are offering round trip airfare. Tsegyalgar West will provide accommodations and meals. Tsegyalgar West is requiring six hours of work per day. We would like our Los Angeles Dzogchen Community’s Ambassador to commit to at least two weeks of Karma Yoga. Depending upon the circumstances on the land, lodging offered may be camping.

Candidates will be chosen by skill set, and duration of commitment. Fluency in the Spanish Language is very helpful.

To apply, please send us an email.
