Host Danielle Orr speaks with Buddhist Master Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, 8-16-2010

 
Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel has studied and practiced the Buddhadharma for 25 years under the guidance of her teacher and husband, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche.  She has been involved with Rinpoche’s work in bringing Buddhist wisdom to the West in particular to the development of Mangala Shri Bhuti, an organization dedicated to the study and practice of the Longchen Nyingthig lineage.

Elizabeth has an academic backround in both Anthropology and Buddhist Studies. 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 has edited Rinpoche’s two books, It’s Up to You and Light Comes Through and has  recently completed writing her first book, The Power of an Open Question, to be released September 2010.
