TLC's 2022 Membership Information


~ A Message to our Community ~

TLC sends you our most sincere thanks for all your support during 2021 - we couldn't provide this program without you! We begin our 8th year of service in March of 2022, and continue to realize our aspiration to offer support as we live through a pandemic. TLC has presented over 50 programs since our beginnings in 2015, as well as Deep Chat support groups, our 'Teachings of the Masters' film series, Film Archive (18 videos are now available!), translation projects, our manual 'Instructions for the Transitional State', a resourceful website, and our newsletter.


During 2021 we were blessed with amazing teachings by Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche and Khenpo Norgay Rinpoche, an inspiring  multi-session series with Khenpo Paljor Gyatso, Sur practice with Loppon Yudron Wangmo, essential advice from Lama John Ross and Lama Padma Gyatso, and Buddhist attorneys Kathleen Pratt and Vanessa Kubota offered a stellar program explaining legal documentation. This February, Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel led us through an investigation of faith and the mind. TLC continues to support the community with programs focused on The Buddha's advice to his disciples, all the way across the spectrum to how we can finally complete our end of life paperwork. Serving you is our reason for being, and the reason we carry on.
