How do we create stable happiness in a rapidly changing world of pandemics, social upheaval, injustice, and pervasive stress? Buddhist teachings offer practical meditation techniques that calm the mind and awaken wisdom—not only an effective antidote for the stress and anxiety to modern life, but more importantly, a key unlocking the door to spiritual freedom.

COVID POLICY: An N-95 or KN-95 mask is required at all times. We encourage, but do not require vaccination. COST: DFF does  not charge a fee for attendance, but invites you to make a heartfelt offering according to your ability to give.

Yangsi Rinpoche bio: At the age of six, Rinpoche was recognized as the reincarnation of Geshe Ngawang Gendun, a renowned scholar and practitioner from Western Tibet. Rinpoche trained in the traditional monastic system for over twenty-five years. In 1995 he graduated with the highest degree of Geshe Lharampa from Sera Je Monastery in South India. Rinpoche is the co-founder and President of Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon and the author of  “Practicing the Path: a Commentary on the Lamrim Chenmo” published in 2003 by Wisdom Publications.  He is the Spiritual Director of Dharma Friendship Foundation and  teaches world wide.

Venerable Lozang Yönten bio: An American-born Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition, Ven. Lozang was ordained in 2003. A practicing Buddhist since 1994, Ven. Yönten moved to Chenrezig Institute in Australia and studied intensively under Geshe Tashi Tsering from 2002 – 2009. Since then, she has continued studying and teaching at Dharma Centers in India, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, and Israel.


About Dharma Friendship Foundation: For over 35 years, DFF has held space for wishing to explore the liberating wisdom and skillful means of Buddhist teachings. Our community is based in the Seattle area on the traditional homeland of the coast Salish people, though our connections are global via our online library of transcripts, videos and events hosted online. These are extraordinary times we are living through: emerging from a global pandemic and an increasingly urgent climate crisis compounded by daily reminders of injustice in racial, economic, social, and other spheres of modern life. At DFF, we embrace these challenges in all their complexity, as opportunities to deepen our practice through wise reflection, conversation, and compassionate engagement.  We invite and welcome your participation in our spaces – in person as public health allows, and online.  Thank you for your support and practice!
