May 8, 2018: We are very happy to announce the return of Lopon Damchoe Wangmo to PCD-DC next month. Lopon told us she hopes to see us the weekend of June 15 – 17, so please save those dates. Her teaching program is not yet confirmed. Lopon is the first Western woman to complete the rigorous nine-year program in Buddhist studies at Namdroling Monastery in South India. Currently she studies for her doctorate degree at Harvard Divinity School.

This is the audio recording from Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche's
visit to PCD-DC on April 1, 2018. It is a traditional commentary on
the Wheel of Analytical Meditation by the 19th century
meditation master and celebrated scholar Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche. The
Wheel has been used by PCD-DC as our study guide for the intermediate
meditation classes. This teaching from Khenpo Norgay is an opportunity
for students to receive these instructions from an official lineage
holder of Mipham's wisdom.
