About us

Pristine Mind meditation is a powerful form of meditation that comes from the Dzogchen tradition. During this special evening program, renowned meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will provide experiential guidance on how mindfulness and Pristine Mind meditation work in union to help us calm our agitated minds, uncover our naturally pristine state of mind, and learn to maintain an experience of the unconditional happiness that lies within us in every moment.

Using simple language based on teachings from his book, Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness, Rinpoche will provide precise, experiential instructions drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings that make this life-transforming journey from mindfulness to Pristine Mind accessible to all.

Through a combination of teaching, guided meditation, and opportunities for questions and answers, you will learn practices for working with your mind to reduce anxiety and stress, enhance your happiness, effectiveness, and relationships, and reconnect with your natural state of mind. These methods are deeply relevant whether you are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.

Beginners welcome. No background with meditation is necessary.

About Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche:

Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is a meditation master in the Dzogchen lineage of the Buddhist tradition with a particular passion for presenting these teachings in a practical and experiential way for a modern audience. He studied for nine years with his teacher, Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche, one of the greatest Dzogchen masters of the twentieth century. After completing his studies and receiving the khenpo degree, the highest degree of Buddhist study and practice, he spent several years teaching lamas, monks, and Western students at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling, a large monastery in Nepal. During that time, he received additional advanced instructions from the renowned teachers Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.

Since 1995, Rinpoche has lived in the United States. He resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he is the founder and spiritual director of Pristine Mind Foundation. He conducts retreats and offers teachings throughout the United States and around the world, for a broad range of audiences, including business and technology professionals, parents, children, health-care providers, psychologists, spiritual seekers, and yoga practitioners. His teachings are also available online through live streams and recordings.
