June 22- 23 Weekend Retreat

Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche and Dana Marsh will co-teach

Journey to Inner Freedom: How to work with our mind.

The journey to inner freedom is the moment by moment practice of working with our mind. Without the ability to transform our relationship to our thoughts and emotions we get caught in the turbulence of confusion. Wisdom, love and compassion become the expression of the mind when we live in awareness. Through training, we see our true nature and experience inner freedom.

Tulku Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche and Dana Marsh will be co-leading this journey. Through meditation and dharma talks they will share the profound teachings of the Buddhadharma to illuminate the path to freedom.

Dates: June 22 & 23

Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche was born in the Golok region of Eastern Tibet as the fourth descendant of the great Tibetan master Dudjom Lingpa, one of the foremost spiritual masters of 19th Century Tibet. At the age of 15 he was recognized as the reincarnation of Rigzin Longsel Nyingpo by Choktrul Tamdrin Wangyel. He attended Larung Gar Monastery and studied Buddhist teachings in great depth, including Sutra and Tantra as well as Dzogchen pith instructions and empowerments with Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok, who formally requested for Rinpoche to teach and preserve the lineage of Dudjom Lingpa. In addition to his training at Larung Gar, Rinpoche received teachings from a well-known female teacher and descendant of Dudjom Lingpa, Dakini Kunzang Wangmo, who also encouraged him to teach and preserve the Dudjom lineage.

While in Tibet, Rinpoche was responsible for the publication of many revelatory writings from Dudjom Lingpa and produced an original woodblock edition of the Nyingma Gyudbum, The 100,000 Tantras of the Nyingma Lineage, published at the Derge Printing House. Since 2011, Rinpoche has lived primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In 2014 Rinpoche founded The Abhaya Fellowship, which is a Buddhist community dedicated to keeping the Nyingma lineage of the Dudjom Tersar alive, and functions as an umbrella for activities like meditations retreats, teachings and as a center for satellite sanghas or practice communities.


Dana Marsh has spent many years meditating and studying the buddhadharma under the guidance of her root teacher Anam Thubten Rinpoche who embodies profound wisdom and compassion. In 2007, he ordained her as a dharma teacher, in the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

Dana is the author of Extraordinary Freedom: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Times. In addition, she is the spiritual director of Heart of the Dharma, located in Boise, Idaho. She conveys the Dharma by pointing directly to the heart of the matter. You will find that she encourages and guides others with love, humor, and devotion to the truth to experience transcendent wisdom for themselves. Her teaching style is easy to relate to and contemporary, inviting everyone to see their own beautiful nature.
