Our Vision


The Blazing Mountain Retreat center is owned and operated by the Dharma Ocean Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to unfold and extend the rich and developing legacy of the great Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. A centerpiece of Rinpoche’s teachings was his contemplative and nonsectarian approach to spiritual awakening, a core value of Dharma Ocean.

As such, the vision for the Blazing Mountain Retreat Center is simply to create a sacred and protected space in which practitioners can explore the richness and bounty of their most fundamental self, their communities, and their own traditions.
