(Class will be in English only) ABOUT DHARMA Dharma is a senior monk at the Vajranandacharya Buddhist school and the Bodhiwoods spiritual retreat in the Santa Cruz mountains of Northern California. He is a teacher of Dzogchen Indo-Tibetan Buddhist meditation and Karma Yoga. Dharma is a student of Samvara, the author of The Enlightenment Workbook of Buddhist Mysticism, which is a spiritual guide that imparts the authentic ancient Buddhist teachings lucidly so that the spiritual path becomes accessible and easily applicable for Westerners. Dharma has practiced martial arts since the age of 14 and is a black belt in Kempo and Small Circle Jiu Jitsu. He was taught by Samvara, a master martial artist in multiple martial arts styles, how to make martial arts a spiritual practice. He was ordained a Buddhist monk in 2002 and was given the instructions and transmissions to be initiated into the highest doctrines of Dzogchen Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Mysticism by his Buddhist master Samvara. Dharma's studies have also lead him to inspiring spiritual pilgrimages to sacred places throughout the world including India and the Native American Southwest. He currently is CEO of a successful technology company in Silicon Valley California where he and his team run their business on the core values of practicing compassion and selfless service.
