Trained to be doers and achievers, many modern day meditators seek to experience heightened states of joy, clarity, and enlightenment as part of an agenda for spiritual self improvement when engaging with the Buddha's teachings.

About the Teacher:
Appreciated by students for his joy, insight and clarity of presentation, Dawa Tarchin Phillips combines the unique perspective of a Western international upbringing with the traditional training of an authentic Buddhist Lama.
