Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel

Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel, author of The Power of an Open Question: The Buddha’s Path to Freedom, has studied and practiced the Buddhadharma for 25 years under the guidance of her teacher and husband, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. Elizabeth has an academic background in both Anthropology and Buddhist Studies, but her learning is also grounded in meditation practice. After many years of solitary retreat, Rinpoche appointed Elizabeth as Retreat Master at Longchen Jigme Samten Ling, Mangala Shri Bhuti’s retreat center in southern Colorado. She will be joining the retreat for three days offering teachings on Prajnaparamita.
