Dön Season Teachings and Gathering

Filed under Dharma Teachings

Dön season is the period that falls on the eleven days before before the lunar new year. In Shambhala, the tradition is to perform special practices, including mamo chants, each day of this period in response to the increased obstacles that can gather as a year comes to an end.

This year, Shambhala Global Services and Shambhala Online are offering daily mamos practice sessions with talks by senior teachers in our community during dön season. Each day will feature a presentation about a different protector in our tradition or the history and tradition of the mamos chants, and will be followed by group recitations of the mamos chants.

Presenters for these “dön days gatherings” will include: Tom Berthoff, Francesca Dalio, Marian English, Acharya Dan Hessey, Kristine McCutcheon, Acharya Fleet Maull, Acharya Mathias Pongracz, Ute Reinhardt, John Rockwell, Shastri Will Ryken, and Toby Sifton.

You can join these gatherings here.
