Who We Are

We practice Tibetan Buddhism with a focus on essential simple practices in the style of the Nyingma tradition's Buddhist Yogis. Founded in 2004 by Pema Khandro, approximately a dozen residents live together at the center. We practice morning meditation and otherwise live normal lives in the vibrant environment of Berkeley.
