Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche was trained as a lama from the age of four. While trained in all four major Tibetan Buddhist lineages, he received the complete Nyingma cycle of teachings and empowerments from his guru, Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche. In the United States, Rinpoche has founded the Dzogchen Ati Ling meditation and teaching centers in Jamestown and Syracuse, New York, the Dharmachakra Fund and the Tibetan Refugee Children’s Fund. “Buddhafield, the Center for Enlightenment” in Millerton, New York, is destined to become a center for his teachings.
In Shyalpa Rinpoche’s book Living Fully: Finding Joy in Every Breath he offers a prescription for addressing the challenges and stresses of everyday life; tools we need to experience genuine inner freedom, uncorrupted by endless craving for something better.

Prior to entering private practice, she was a neuropsychologist on the faculty at the Emory University School of Medicine. She has a special interest in the practice of mindfulness, especially in how it stimulates the brain to grow new, more integrated circuits ~ which may be at the heart of well-being, including emotional balance and resilience, enhanced relationships and friendships, and greater empathy and connectedness.
