If you are specifically coming for the Shedra Consecration, you should not travel with us. After 2 years preparation, the consecration that supposed to happen in July 2018 got cancelled at last minute. We have no way of assuring planned 2019 consecration will not be cancelled.
Trunpa Tulku tells us the consecration will happen end of July or early August. Thus, Conscious Journeys scheduling its annual Surmang Pilgrimage trip for two weeks from July 28th to August 10th (which is same as 2017 trip). If the consecration happens, this will be good. If not, you can still experience Tibet without the consecration.
We have few great Tibetan guides in Yushu but some of them do not speak fluent English. If you would like to take one of our staff from the office with you, as people often do, be sure to request one early. This will make a difference with your experiences in Surmang in terms of communication and trust around Trungpa Tulku and local community members.
