2016 Miksang Summer Institute

Our 2016 Miksang Summer Institute begins in June this year, and will cover the first three courses of the curriculum, and, for those of you who have been waiting for Space and Cutting Loose, we will be offering these two workshops this year as well.

*All 5 levels of the Miksang Institute have been confirmed!*

* There is a discounted price of $395 for students who would like to do a refresh of any workshop they have taken before! Send us an e-mail if you would like to return to any of the workshops.

* The Best Western Plus is offering a discounted price for participants.

* There are also economical housing options available locally through friends of the Institute and Airbnb.  

* For the first time, there will be a two-day tutorial before the Summer Institute for people who need some personal training in how to use their camera and editing software with confidence. Subjects to be covered will be the best camera settings for your camera, point of focus, depth of field, and exposure. On the second day we will go through how to transfer your images to a USB stick and edit them on your laptop. Mac users only, please. The cost per participant is $200. Maximum number is five. To register, please email us at:
