The organizers of the Three Yanas Intensive are a group of students—young, old, and in-between—who are inspired to make Trungpa Rinpoche’s approach to deep study and practice available to future generations of practitioners.


We are seeking input, critique, collaboration, insight, and inspiration from anyone who shares this inspiration.
