Lay or Combined Lay and Monastic Centers

The lay Sanghas ( non monastic / non ordained, students and practitioners) are beginning to flourish in earnest. New Centers are being openened, following the opening in 2012 of the Ripa International Center, which is the ‘mother’ center of the lay Sangha more broadly. The Ripa lineage has a strong tradition of lay practice, in line with its historical depth of accomplishment in Dzogpachenpo. Thus, new centers, re-interpreted for today’s times, but in harmony with the traditions of the past, are being opened globally. Please visit the links for our other centers as follows:
