Dear Profound Treasury Retreat Community,
It’s been a little while! You all have been on our hearts and minds, and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and in good health. Cancelling last year’s retreats was a painful decision for many of us and brought home how important it is to gather together and support one another.
As the new year begins, and we consider what to do this summer, we are beginning to cheerfully aspire as to what could be in 2021.
If you ask, “What about Maine? Will we be able to gather to practice and study in-person again?” Well…yes, sort of… we have been meeting and imagining what a smaller, COVID-safe retreat in Maine would look like in 2021—a retreat that could connect a small gathering in Maine virtually with other local, small, COVID-safe gatherings across the globe as well as connect to you individually from your home. And although we don’t have it all figured out just yet, we are intending to gather the resources and energy in the coming month in order to enable this vision to happen June 18-27, 2021. If you are interested in assisting in any way to either lead a local retreat effort in your community, support the IT effort needed, or to support an in-person retreat in Maine, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regarding PTRW Crestone, it’s a bit early to tell. We welcome ideas and input on this. It is uncertain whether the Blazing Mountain venue will be open and available. In the meantime, we invite you to join us for “Profound Simplicity,” an online video course we are planning to offer this spring. We will send you more specifics on when that will be available and how to sign up soon!
As always, we appreciate you and your commitment to the teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and the Profound Treasury Dharma Foundation.
We look forward to supporting and connecting with you all in 2021,
Judy & Jacqueline
