Graduating from the Buddhist Immersion but not ready to let go of the teachings and community? Announcing…








Starting September 1st, you can join a diverse and inclusive sangha of students to deepen your meditation practice and study the Buddhist canon with the mentorship of Lodro Rinzler. Participate based on your own schedule in an in-depth curriculum that brings the traditional teachings of the Buddha to life and makes them particularly applicable to our modern world.

"Lodro is a witty, insightful, and intelligent teacher. He combines an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the Buddhist text with a deep practical wisdom of what it is to be a human in the modern world.”
