Provider Details


Lama Yeshe Palmo is available for spiritual counseling to help with the challenges of daily life and also to help us learn the tools to meet and discern challenges, clear away confusion, traverse difficult times, and discover the strength within us that we already have. Spiritual counseling and meditation training help relieve negative states of mind and develop positive ways of living. Learn the techniques that allow for calm even when you are not in peaceful circumstances.

What is the nature of mind? How can we rest in our innate peace? Private and public lessons in meditation and inner exploration, including calm-abiding and insight techniques that use traditional Tibetan Buddhist psychological practices as an alternate method for transformation and inner work.

A gradual path of mind training and classic meditations is available for those who would like to enter the Buddhist path and can commit to a daily meditation practice. The path allows one to more fully engage the world while at the same time eventually leading to realization of mind.

The program engages the traditional Tibetan Buddhist method of study, contemplation and meditation of the Kagyu lineage unbroken since the Buddha’s first teachings. Beginning with entry level meditation training, the student gains experience with resting the mind and then looking at the mind using shinay or calm-abiding meditation and lhaktong or insight meditation. One learns to recognize and rest in the mind’s true nature of spaciousness and clarity.
