Honoring the Water: Teaching and Practice of Naga Offerings
Nagas are the custodians of the water realms, often serving as protectors of the doctrine and keepers of treasures. We have a close connection with the nagas through the water element, which pervades all of life, but we can unknowingly cause harm to the nagas through polluting and destroying the environment. In this weekend seminar we will learn about the realm of the nagas and our relationship to them, and how we can restore harmony and healing to our connection with them.
