Hello Friends of the Miksang Institute
For those of you who may have had nor’easters lately, we hope you’ve had a chance to go outside and immerse yourselves in Winter-ness. The changing landscape of winter weather can be truly wondrous.
We have three updates for you this month:
- Announcing New Summer Workshop

- Video Preview
