He has received empowerments and teachings from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche, His Holiness Sakya Trizin, and studied the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, along with many other contemporary and historical figures. His primary practice is Dzogchen and he has an affinity for the Dzogchen teachings of Longchen Rabjam and Jigme Lingpa.

It is in this spirit that he has agreed to share whatever he knows for the benefit of others. Khenpo is the designer of the Awam curriculum and online classes (, including over 500 videos. He serves on the Board and committees of the Arizona Friends of Tibet and two interfaith committees in Tucson, Arizona.
