Guest Faculty:

Tulku Orgyen with a brilliant sky

Tulku Orgyen Phuntsok will be giving transmissions and teachings on two core healing practices in March, as well as life-death transition teachings in September.

At a young age Tulku Orgyen P’huntsok was recognized by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche as the reincarnation of Togden Kunzang Longdrol, or Togden Sithar, a great Dzogchen yogi from the Powo region who had been a main disciple of his, and who had been influential in spreading the Dharma, both in Tibet and in Padmasambhava’s sacred Hidden Land of upper and lower Pemaköd.

Tulku Orgyen spent his early years in retreat in Pemaköd, his birthplace in northeastern India, at his own monastery under the blessings of his first root teacher, the great master Tulku Dawa Rinpoche. Tulku underwent vigorous training in multiple fields of study, including various ritual sadhana performances from different treasure lineages, with an emphasis on the Dudjom Tersar lineage, all under excellent care of his previous incarnation’s disciples, including his father Lama Rigzin P’huntsok.

At the age of 15, Tulku Orgyen commenced advanced studies in southern India at Namdroling monastery, the largest Nyingma monastery in India, established by H.H. Penor Rinpoche, the previous Supreme Head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Here Tulku Orgyen completed a nine-year-long program of study, obtaining the degree of Khenpo with excellent marks. While studying for his Khenpo degree, he was appointed to a teaching position for the duration of his final three years at the monastery. During this time, he taught various Buddhist philosophies to monks. Over the course of his nine years of study, he also received empowerments and transmissions from a number of lineage holders and great masters of the Nyingma lineage, including H.H. Penor Rinpoche. Upon completion of advanced studies at Namdroling monastery, Tulku Orgyen returned to his retreat land in Pemaköd, where he engaged in solitary retreat and completed the requisite practices to become a qualified Vajra Master in this lineage.

Since late 1999, Tulku Orgyen P’huntsok has assisted his uncle and teacher, Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche, by giving teachings, leading practices and retreats, and undertaking various other Dharma activities at Vairotsana Foundation Centers in California and New Mexico and in various cities in North America and Asia. In order to gain a western education and perspective, Tulku Orgyen studied and guest lectured at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

"I cannot recommend enough the Vitalistic Healing Program. This program has immense impact on how it has sharpened my skills as a healer. Not only did it enhance and augment my training as a healer, it gave me so much perspective and insights to the different ways of diagnosis and of life in general. Just like the facets on a diamond, it gives one a more complete picture looking at things from various angles. I feel that this course is essential in the art of healing."

Miah Kim, DVH (Doctor of Vitalistic Healing)


"The Vitalistic Healing program was an important part of my homeopathic education. Not only did I gain tools for understanding and helping my clients, but I started down a road of philosophical and intuitive self-discovery that will continue for the rest of my life. Willa does a wonderful job of encapsulating such wide-ranging esoteric traditions. I look forward to participating in the updated course soon!"

Hart Matthews, DVH
