Meditation is the simple yet profound practice of awakening to our basic nature. Through the practice of meditation, we are gradually able to let go of what is not truly us, leaving exposed the brilliant, awakened state, which is what we really are.
REGGIE RAY & CAROLINE PFOHL
As Spiritual Director and lineage holder of Dharma Ocean, Reggie brings us some five decades of study and meditation within the lineage of Chogyam Trungpa. In 2007, Caroline agreed to enter into training to become co-lineage holder and in 2017, the tenth anniversary, Reggie fully empowered her in this role, including all the authority and responsibility that up until now has been his alone. In 2018, the Dharma Ocean amended its articles and bylaws, to reflect Caroline’s new status as equal in every way to Reggie’s.
Residential retreats and online programs are offered regularly so that students may train in the Dharma Ocean teachings and practices. Visit our program calendar to learn more about upcoming retreats at our Blazing Mountain Retreat Center in Crestone, Colorado.
