Online: Discovering the Dharma III Live Stream

With Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche

September 4 - 9, 2020

unveil your awakened nature


In Discovering the Dharma III, H.E. Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche outlines the entire Tibetan Buddhist path using teachings from Gampopa’s Jewel Ornament of Liberation. He discusses the mind of ignorance and insight, the path of practice and the teacher-student connection, all over five days of engaged learning and guided practice.

For the first time, this transformative teaching is available to live-stream online. You will receive the teachings, have the opportunity to ask questions during the question and answer period, follow the guided meditations and yoga, and participate in small-group discussions with other online participants. You will also have full access to the recordings after the retreat. See the schedule below for more details.


We have a limited number of need-based scholarships available for the Live Stream sessions. To apply, please complete a quick questionnaire. We will be awarding these scholarships on a rolling basis.
