We are thrilled to confirm BPIG’s kick-off event for 2018 with world expert, visiting overseas teacher and renowned Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche.

This is a rare opportunity to receive direct guidance and teachings from a great master, to meet with colleagues, networking beforehand over a light meal at 6pm followed by the talk and meditation.

Pristine Mind meditation is a powerful form of meditation from the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. On this special evening program Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will provide direct experiential guidance on how mindfulness coupled with Pristine Mind meditation helps calm the agitated mind and enable an experience of unconditional happiness.

He will combine teaching, guided meditation with time for Q&A.

Learning outcomes
