Laying down paths of living

A living world templating this pathway of me.”

Tarchin Hearn is a widely respected teacher and practitioner of Contemplative Science and Natural Awakening. He has taught in many countries and helped establish a number of centres for retreat and healing. As a young monk, he was introduced by his teacher, Namgyal Rinpoché to many schools and practices of Buddhadharma. Today, his work, while rooted in Buddhist principles, links personal and communal healing with a deep ecological perspective in ways that inspire a wide range of people from a variety of diverse backgrounds and traditions. Tarchin lives in the Bay of Plenty with his partner and long-time companion, Mary Jenkins.
