Thank you for offering to volunteer during the teachings!
The temple welcomes those who wish to accumulate merit by offering service to the temple and sangha during their stay. Volunteers may help in various ways, including service of daily tea offerings, cleaning and resetting the shrine room each afternoon, and helping in the kitchen and dining room. A regular commitment of an hour a day is requested from those who wish to become official volunteers. Official volunteers will be recognized with appreciation during and at the conclusion of the teachings.

There are no specific prerequisites to receive the Chakrasamvara Empowerment, however, students should at a minimum consider themselves Buddhist and have developed enlightenment thought.
In order to receive the Vajrayogini Blessing, one must have received a two-day major empowerment. The Chakrasamvara Empowerment is best, however, Hevajra and other two-day major empowerments are also acceptable. Single-day initiations do not meet this requirement.
One must have received the Vajrayogini Blessing in order to be eligible for the Vajrayogini Cycle of Teachings.
The Vajrayogini Blessing and cycle of teachings include daily commitments. Please review the commitments below and only proceed to sign up if you are ready to keep them.

For those planning to attend the Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini empowerments and teachings, please arrange your schedule to be available in Walden the entire time from June 10-25. Do not make arrangements to travel away from Walden during this period or you may miss the empowerment into which you will be scheduled. Empowerment schedules are created under the direction of the Vajramaster the day before each empowerment begins.
Bring your vajra and bell. Please do not bring audio or video recording equipment as no individual audio or video recording will be allowed. Students wishing to have a copy of the teachings will be able to purchase a professionally recorded copy of the teachings for a reasonable price at the end of the teaching cycle.
