What we're about

We are a group of Buddhist practitioners offering weekly practices and teachings on the View, Meditation and Conduct of the Dzogchen Buddha Path lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, under the guidance of H.E. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. Our weekly gatherings and weekend retreats provide a stable foundation for anyone wanting to increase their own positive thinking and happiness while contributing to the happiness of others. Practitioners report reduced stress, more love and compassion, better relationships, and fewer distractions. When we practice positive thinking (dharma), we are more productive, happier, better looking and we have more friends!

Everyone is welcome! All events are held at the Portland Dharma Center unless otherwise noted.
