DHARMA CITY (Belgium), 12 to 23 February, 2013
A text about the meaning of drupchens and the possibility to support it in different ways, written by Patrul Rinpoche, can be read here.

A drupchen (great accomplishment) is a group practice in the form of a meditation retreat according to the Vajrayana tradition and guided by an experienced Lama. During the seven days of the retreat, practitioners continuously perform the Rigdzin Dupa practice (sadhana), offer the feast (tsok) and recite the drupchen prayers and mantra, doing so in shifts in order to rest between the recitations.
The aim of a Drupchen is to purify and tame our body, speech and mind to become authentic and beneficial.
A four day preparatory course (12-15 February) will give everyone the time to learn the perfect way of performing a Drupchen, and the Drupchen will run for 8 nights and 7 full days (15 February 7pm to 23 February 8am). It is an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to keep alive this tradition and create a cause for future well-being and happiness for themselves and for all beings. The drupchen will take place in the serene setting of Dharma City, imbued with Rinpoche's kindness and compassion.
Partial participation is possible and attendance is welcome anytime.
 
A Vajrasattva Drupchen, also with a four days preparatory course and guided by Patrul Rinpoche, will be held in Dharma City from July 10 until July 22, 2013.
Enrolment is open
