Longchen Nyingthig Temple of Buddhadharma

Our Tibetan Buddhist temple includes a meditation hall, a garden and a library to further the study and practice of Buddhism. Instruction is based on traditional meditative/contemplative practice revealed through the Longchen Nyingthig lineage. Adzom Gyalse Rinpoche included Copper Mountain Institute in his 2016 teaching tour of North America and will continue to guide us in our Adzom Lineage practices.

Anne Klein/Ridzin Drolma and Harvey Aronson are guiding teachers via retreat broadcasts from Dawn Mountain in Houston Texas. www.dawnmountain.org

We also host visiting scholars and teachers.

Weekly practice, classes and meditation instruction have been offered at Copper Mountain by Founding Directors Carol A. Hoy and David Paul Boaz since January 1999 under the auspices of Adzom Paylo Rinpoche. Carol Hoy is resident meditation teacher. David Paul Boaz teaches mindfulness practice, and is also founding director of the Institute's Mindfulness Prison Project
All are welcome!

The Clear Light Institute for Contemplative Studies provides facilities and support, including a four thousand volume East/West library of philosophy, psychology and religious and integral studies. We sponsor seminars and symposia for visiting scholars and teachers.
