A student of Shambhala since 2015, I have been practicing Samatha over two years, on a daily basis. I attend sit and study at the Albuquerque Shambhala Meditation Center where I am also the Volunteer Coordinator, a member of the Kasung, and coordinate Dharma programs.


A native to Albuquerque, NM, I have lived in five other states over the years. I enjoy studying Dharma, working with others and providing pet care services. As a lover of community and music, I so look forward to the upcoming Harvest of Peace celebration and subsequent dance!!!!!!!

Main teachers

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Thich Nhat Hanh


This request is for the $500 down payment on a two year program. I am seeking to learn "how to work skillfully with ourselves and others through the innate potency of the heart." This program involves the deep study of Tibetan Vajrayana principles with contemplative practice and skills development.


Provide ongoing services as Volunteer Coordinator, Kasung, and assist those providing Dharma study.
