Lynn’s dharma journey began in 1974 when, at the age of 12, she and her family traveled from South Carolina to the inaugural summer of Naropa Institute.

In this session, Lynn will describe her work with the Profound Treasury Retreats, a 9-day Buddhist meditation and study retreat centered around the teachings given by Trungpa Rinpoche at seventeen Vajradhatu Seminaries. She will also describe the upcoming Entering The Vajra World Retreat, designed for students who have a solid foundation in Buddhism and the preparation, desire and commitment to become vajrayana practitioners, as well as for those students who are already vajrayana practitioners. She will also share her experience as the director of the Chogyam Trungpa Digital Library which makes available to dharma students around the world Trungpa Rinpoche’s public teachings in a searchable, captioned, interactive format.

Noble Sons & Daughters Series

A Lecture Series:
Over the course of 2024, join more than twenty individuals who began their Buddhist path as students of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, or within the Vajradhatu / Shambhala community, and who have continued walking the path of dharma in an amazing variety of ways.

Guest speakers will describe how they entered the path, how they continued their dharma training (within or without the Vajradhatu / Shambhala organization), what teachers they have studied with, and what kinds of training they sought. They will also speak about what aspects of the dharma they have been emphasizing in their own roles as students and/or teachers and will leave ample time for questions and discussion.

Through this sharing of experiences, participants can explore the richness of our greater Vajradhatu / Shambhala extended dharma family, learn more about close teachers and other thriving dharma communities.
