Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness

Renowned Bay Area meditation master Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche introduces a unique approach to meditation and guides participants to distinguish between ordinary mind, with its thoughts, feelings and mental events, and Pristine Mind, a deep inner refuge that we can access at any time. Using simple language based on teachings from his new book, Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness (Shambhala, 2016), Rinpoche provides precise, experiential instructions drawn from the Dzogchen mind-class teachings that make this life-transforming realization attainable for all. These teachings are deeply relevant whether we are just seeking a happier life or are pursuing the spiritual journey all the way to enlightenment.

Rinpoche offers a guided meditation and shares inspiring principles for working with our minds to improve our relationships, find peace and tranquility, and develop the life-changing ability to achieve unconditional happiness.
