"I am so grateful for the Triyana, the teachings, the sangha. It is so much more than a course, it is guidance from wonderful teachers and support from sangha for a life changing experience. I am so glad it’s a triyana with a 2nd and third year because I don’t want it to end."

-WW Virginia, USA

"Year 1 of Triyana study has been so valuable to my practice. [The instructors] are amazing guides to the dharma and are able to help me understand the principles and practices that have helped me build a stronger spiritual practice that has benefitted both myself and everyone around me. One of the best parts of the program is to be able to follow this path along side the most loving and kind sangha. My Triyana friends are always there for me offering support, encouragement, and so much insight and wisdom generated from their own practices. Looking forward to the remaining two years of study."
