Lopön Chandra EastonTeacher of Tibetan Buddhism
Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton is the assistant spiritual director and lead teacher (Dorje Lopön) for Tara Mandala Retreat Center, founded by Lama Tsultrim Allione. She has taught Buddhism and Yoga since 2001 and co-translated Sublime Dharma: A Compilation of Two Texts on the Great Perfection. While her training is rooted in Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana) and Dzogchen (Great Perfection) in particular, her primary interest is in finding ways to make these traditional teachings relevant and accessible for our modern experience. She is also committed to elevating the voice of the feminine within Buddhism through sharing stories, teachings, experiences, poetry of women who walked the path so that we may learn through seeing through women’s eyes. She teaches in the San Francisco Bay Area and abroad, and lives in Berkeley, CA.
