Dharma Teacher, Margha Program Co-Director, Mitra
Bob Morrison is a writer living in Northampton, Massachusetts. Since meeting the late Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche in 1994, he has studied and practiced primarily in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism with numerous teachers both Western and Tibetan, including Lama Willa Miller, Lama John Makransky, Brendan Kennedy, Lama Surya Das, Charles Genoud, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, and Anam Thubten.
As a teacher with Natural Dharma Fellowship since its founding, he co-directs (with Camille Hykes) its Margha program, offering year-long trainings in natural meditation and bodhicitta practices. He is also a guiding teacher with Foundation for Active Compassion, sharing Tibetan-based practices of wisdom and compassion adapted by Lama John Makransky.
As an avid hiker and shamanic explorer, his special interests include the awakening power of nature; and as a cancer survivor, embracing life-threatening illness as a spiritual opportunity. His writing includes a passion for chronicling the “magical display of appearances” offered by our world.
