In response to the global corona virus Pandemic, Pema Khandro has moved all her spring teachings to be online and offered additional public programs to extend support and offer resources. The May retreat and Dakini Day Chod have moved online. Public classes at the various communities are now cancelled as all the Ngakpa International staff and residents are sheltering in place. The Empathy Training has been rescheduled and will be online starting April 29th. Dakini Mountain and Khandro Ling remain closed to the public. Likewise, the residents at the House of Bodhichitta are sheltering in place.

Pema Khandro has  written this letter to address questions about what to practice:

She also offered two classes on Medicine Buddha.
