About us

“Happiness isn’t something we need to find or achieve.

It is the very core of our being.”

– Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

Join meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche for this special weekend program in Glenorchy, New Zealand based on his book Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness.

Right now, we can feel and experience anger, stress, and other uncomfortable states of mind. But we don’t experience the pristine natural state of mind that lies within us. During this two-day retreat, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will teach us how we can feel not only our thoughts, but can actually experience our Pristine Mind in every moment through Pristine Mind Meditation.

Many people are familiar with mindfulness meditation. Using mindfulness as a basis, Pristine Mind meditation is an approach to meditation without an object that helps us find happiness within, dispels toxins and distortions of mind, and brings about greater health and a deep sense of well-being.

Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will provide precise, experiential instructions and guided meditations drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings making the life-transforming realization of the pristine nature of mind attainable for all. These teachings are deeply relevant whether we are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.

No background with meditation is necessary.
