What we do

The 3 Doors offers meditation teachings around the world, including 2 1/2 year Academy programs in Europe, Latin America and North America; weekend and monthly retreats; as well as a 9-month Compassion Project for social service, education and healthcare providers. We teach Tibetan meditation methods that harmonize the body, speech, and mind to help people connect to their true creative nature. Our core practices have their roots in the Dzogchen tradition of Bon Buddhism, and are taught in ways that are relevant and accessible to everyday life. The core 3 Doors practices are Inner Refuge, Tsa Lung, Warrior Syllables, 9-Breathings, and The Fivefold Teachings.

One outcome of my experience in The 3 Doors Academy is a new ease in my work. I am now so much more open in my core, in my inner refuge, that spontaneous ways of being with my clients simply emerge – connections grow, words flow, and I am released from the need to over-plan or over-think what I should be doing.

The 3 Doors is a program that helps you unleash your full potential and truly transform your being. As you transform, you can see the impact on others—your family, coworkers, friends, relatives, and society.

Because I’ve spent most of my life doing and not necessarily “being”, this is a seismic shift in my approach to living – and the benefits of The Compassion Project 9-month program are profound… Being able to just be with the things that I struggle with is another level of self-care that I haven’t ever experienced before.

Looking back to the start of the Academy 2½ years earlier, the path at first seemed like crossing a jungle. Then, gradually, supported by the practices of 9 Breathings and Tsa Lung to clear stormy internal winds, Warrior Seed Syllables to overcome fear, and Inner Refuge to experience healing and rest, I found my way.
