Dharma Ocean

Dharma Ocean is a community of meditators committed to bringing the lineage of Chogyam Trungpa and Reggie Ray into the modern world. A person of rare vision, Trungpa Rinpoche is considered one the most influential teachers of 20th century Buddhism. As one of his senior students, Reggie Ray carries this influence into the present day.

Central to Chogyam Trungpa’s teaching is the inherent sacredness of life. Within this view, all that arises is an expression of wisdom and wakefulness. Our task in this life is to develop an attitude of acceptance and openness to this expression, to all experience. Within Dharma Ocean, the practice of somatic meditation develops our capacity to do this.  

In addition to offering a year-round schedule of programs and trainings at the Blazing Mountain Retreat Center in Crestone, Colorado, Dharma Ocean supports a growing  network of locally-based City Sanghas. The community also maintains a rich and robust web presence. Through this, practitioners across the globe are able to access the power and resonance of this lineage via an archive of podcasts, guided meditations, and recorded talks. A number of online programs are also available for engagement. Visit dharmaocean.org to learn more.
