Welcome to The 3 Doors
The 3 Doors is an educational organization inspired by the vision of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, a Tibetan Bön Buddhist meditation master. The purpose of the organization is to offer simple and powerful meditation methods of body, speech, and mind that work with the challenges of everyday life in modern society. We offer classes, workshops, and retreats throughout the Americas and Europe, open to all who are interested in connecting with themselves more deeply through meditation practice in order to transform their lives and contribute to society.
The 3 Doors Academy
The 3 Doors Academy presents experientially-based meditation practices of body, speech and mind over a two and a half year period. We have academies in the United States, Europe, and Latin America. We accept forty applicants into each Academy. This program facilitates inner transformation and ripens the authentic expression of an individual’s unique gifts.
The trainee participates in six residential retreats, shares experiences in monthly small group conference calls, works in a buddy system to support personal practice, and draws upon their mentor relationship for individual guidance and direction. The environment is one of complete confidentiality, ever-available support, and the intimacy that comes when people are willing to openly share their journies with each other. In making a personal commitment to practice these simple, time-honored techniques, trainees reflect on their lives fearlessly and honestly in order to identify limiting patterns of behavior and engage directly in their transformation. In this way, meditation is not a passive but an engaged and dynamic process and a powerful agent of change.
Every aspect of our program—whether it be participation in group and personal retreats, commitment to journal writing, or working with a private mentor—is designed to enable the trainee to effectively bring changes in daily life and to contribute to society. The primary emphasis of the Academy is personal transformation and the creative manifestation of this transformation in all aspects of life.
