Australia Bushfires

Published on 06 January 2020

Warning from organizers to those intending to participate in the upcoming drupchen and teaching events:

As you likely know, Australia is suffering from devastating bushfires, and in cities extreme heat and episodes of hazardous smoke-related air quality that can be injurious to health. Conditions can also change suddenly and unpredictably from one day to the next due to wind shifts, lightning strikes, and tinder dry conditions resulting from the region’s three-year drought.

It is therefore our duty to warn you that events currently planned may be changed at short notice. As well, anyone suffering from respiratory or other ailments should reconsider coming to Australia at this time.
