The 3 Doors Academy

Photo Tagitis by Bogusia Dausend

The 3 Doors Academy presents experientially-based meditation practices of body, speech and mind over a two and a half year period. Joining with up to forty others in this process facilitates inner transformation and ripens the authentic expression of an individual's unique gifts. In making a personal commitment to practice these simple, time-honored techniques, trainees reflect on their lives fearlessly and honestly in order to identify limiting patterns of behavior and engage directly in their transformation. In this way, meditation is not a passive but an engaged and dynamic process and a powerful agent of change. Every aspect of our program—whether it be participation in group and personal retreats, commitment to journal writing, or working with a private mentor—is designed to enable the trainee to effectively bring changes in daily life and to contribute to society. The primary emphasis of the Academy is personal transformation and the creative manifestation of this transformation in all aspects of life.

The Vision of the Three Doors

We offer classes, workshops, and retreats throughout the Americas and Europe, open to all who are interested in connecting with themselves more deeply through meditation practice in order to transform their lives and contribute to society. 


A letter from Rinpoche
