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.  The staff and teachers at DMC have received the vaccine for COVID 19.  We follow the CDC guidelines.  We encourage all participants to receive the vaccination for  COVID 19 before participating in any retreats being offered at the Center this summer.  Participants are required to get a negative result from one of the local testing sites the day of entrance into a retreat.   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.
