Discussion Group with a Senior Teacher

Dharma Ocean senior teachers have a longstanding commitment to the Dharma Ocean path and lineage. As practitioners, they are committed to their personal practice and complete many weeks of residential and solitary retreat before being trained and authorized to teach. Many have been students of Reggie’s for 10 years or more, and all have thousands of hours of active meditation training and practice.
“In the practice of pure awareness, we are developing the refinement and sensitivity to fly in the space of awareness and abide in the space of reality.”

— Dr. Reggie Ray
