Mission Statement

Our mission is to share the healing wisdom of the Nyingma tradition and reveal a path of inner freedom.


The Nyingma Institute offers courses, workshops and retreats to the public. With a focus on developing wellness, our joyful, affirmative approach to meditation, Tibetan yoga, and self-knowledge fosters the development of the whole individual - body, mind, and senses. We have seven fields of study, including Meditation, Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga, Nyingma Psychology, and more.

Nyingma Institute is one of the oldest schools of Tibetan Buddhism in the west, founded by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche in 1972. The Institute’s staff, faculty, and residents are all volunteers. Volunteering is an act of generosity, a path of practice, and a means to nurture enlightened community.
