  • Our Teachers

    Many teachers, both male and female, of the Karma Kagyu lineage come to Kamalashila Institute to give teachings or to practise rituals. Teachers from other Tibetan traditions or teachers from the West also come to us to guide retreats and give seminars. The spiritual head of the Karma Kagyu lineage is H.H. the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje. Here you will find the biographies only of those teachers who offer their courses in English as well. A list of all of our teachers is available on our German Website. Next

No matter what kinds of meditation we practise, all of them are aimed at increasing our mindfulness and presence, facilitating inner peace, and enabling us to deal with our emotions in a healthy way.
