Three years ago Coulter Huyler completed the traditional Tibetan Buddhist 3 Year Retreat at Kagyu Thubten Choling in Wappinger’s Falls, New York. The Abbot, Lama Norlha Rinpoche guided the first such retreats outside of Tibet and conferred on all retreat graduates the title of “Lama,” thereby authorizing them to teach in the Buddhist tradition.
Since emerging from retreat I have been struck by the ever- accelerating stress and violence of modern life. Far too many unhappy faces… too much anger, too much fear. Fortunately, I have met many people aspiring to lead a meaningful life, to be of service, to alleviate suffering. I have been living in Catonsville, Maryland – teaching meditation and practicing acupuncture. I will be moving to Philadelphia this Spring, where I will continue my practice.
If you would like to see a glimpse of retreat, visit YouTube and key in “3 Year Retreat Opening, 2011“.
Best wishes to you all,
