Welcome to Dzogchen Meditation Center







A  Residential Training and Retreat Center in the Practice Lineage of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche




  Dzogchen Meditation Center is an independent meditation center founded by direct students of the Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.   We engage the authentic meditation practices and view of the Maha Ati and Mahamudra schools of Tibetan and Indian Buddhism.

   Dzogchen Meditation Center is not open to the general public.  It is primarily a retreat center for members of the Surmang Kagyu Order.   To enter into training at DMC all applicants, whether they have previous training or not, must first attend a weekend program called "Introduction to Dzogchen Meditation."  These are held several times throughout the year.  
Dzogchen Meditation Center is still offering residential retreats during the COVID 19 pandemic.  We follow the CDC guidelines -- participants need to recieve a negative COVID 19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival at the Center.  Once they arrive, they will be in quarantine for seven days at which time they need a further negative test before engaging in a closed retreat.  Our retreats are all "closed" retreats which effectively creates a quarantine bubble for all participants.  For further information please call Tashi Armstrong at (207) 607-3392
When Experience is the
Youthful prince
of no habitual reference point
The joy of the vajra guru
Manifests as whatever arises.
