I have been practicing dharma for about 8 years now. My background is from the Karma Kagyu tradition where I did my Ngondro. And later on I slowly shifted towards the Dzogchen tradition, particularly the Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche transmission.
I also received and practiced Mingyur Rimpoche teachings. Particulary his Moonbeams of Mahamudra and Joy of Living teachings.
Tsoknyi Rimpoche has also been a precious influence for me with his teachings on Trekchod, his way of working with emotions and the subtle body.
Since 3 years now, I have been following Lama Lena's Dzogchen Teachings.
Every year I try to do one or two months retreat and now I'm looking forward to start the next one soon.


Hello. My name is Valentin from Argentina. I made a connection with the dharma in my early 20's and since then my life has been alternating between working, receiving dharma teachings and doing retreats.
For the past 2 years I have been in India and Nepal studying, taking teachings and practicing dharma. At the beginning of this year I came back to my country Argentina, planning to work and save up money for my up coming retreat, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, my work has been postponed, leaving me unable to save the amount I had planned. So 'working with the circumstances', as my teacher Namkhai Norbu would say, I decided to take advantage of this opportunity and do retreat instead a bit sooner than I expected. Because of this is why I'm asking for your support to make this possible. Any help is highly appreciated!

Main teachers

Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche, Lama Lena, Mingyur Rimpoche, Tsoknyi Rimpoche


My purpose for this fundraising is to gather money for a personal 3 month retreat in SMS training designed by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche


During the full length of my retreat, I'll dedicate my practice to the benefit of everyone who is suffering from this health crisis.
