The Retreat Teaching program at Mahamudra is mostly lead by touring ordained western teachers. We are very grateful to have such teachers share their understanding of Buddhas teachings and wish to pay tribute to them for helping Mahamudra Centre to uphold and share Dharma with its students and practitioners.
They have successfully completed the FPMT teacher registration procedure, meaning they have completed the requisite study and practice to teach at the level for which they are registered and have signed and agreed to abide by the FPMT Ethical Policy. To learn more click here.
