With an emphasis on joyful engagement in life, the Nyingma Institute in Berkeley, California has been bringing the riches of the Tibetan tradition to the Western world since 1972.

Tibetan Yoga; Nyingma Psychology; and the Time, Space, and Knowledge vision were all developed here by our founder Tarthang Tulku. These unique fields of study provide effective ways to counteract tension, clear the mind, and open body and mind to new dimensions of feeling.

We offer ongoing weekend and extended retreats, classes, workshops, certificate programs, resident and non-resident volunteer programs.

Notes and Events:

Pacific Zen Institute was founded by John Tarrant, Roshi 25 years ago as a way to teach that meditation and koans can have a real and direct impact​ on your life in all circumstances. Today there are a number of PZI centers in the US and Canada. Santa Rosa is the location of the original center. ​For more information about Pacific Zen Institute, retreats and programs, go to pacificzen.org .

Our PZI mission is to create a culture for transforming the mind through meditation, koans, conversation and the arts. We believe many impossible things, but the most impossible thing of all, that enlightenment is right here, is also the most true. And it’s not so hard to have an experience of enlightenment.  The trick is to notice it, and to embody the transformation, to live in the world that is transformed.
