Mamo Chants and Coping with Don Season: Jan 30-Feb 6
The ten days preceding Shambhala Day is referred to as the “dön season,” because sudden losses of mindfulness can be more common. It is a time during which it’s recommended that we don’t begin any major undertakings such as extensive travel or big changes of life; but keep life simple, be very mindful, and do a lot of practice.
