Jim Raschick Died on September 14, 2016 on the Big Island of Hawaii

There is also the possibility to contribute to a fund for Jim's 'End of Life' Expenses HERE.

Thank you for your many kind messages and the tributes to the beautiful person that he was.

Here is a video from the Shang Shung Institute Archives that Jim recorded: Early Dzogchen Community 1985

May his journey continue to be luminous.

Best wishes,
Dzogchen Community Hawaii


Jim was like a brother to me, and indeed was a dear Dharma brother since our meeting at the Dzogchen Community's Father's Day retreat at Starseed Ranch on the Big Island in 2012, where it seemed instantly like we had known each other for lifetimes.
This photo is from Summer 2014, after a retreat with Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche at Khandroling - The Land of the Dakinis in Massachusetts. Jim kindly drove me all the way from there to Jersey to see my family -- on a whim of course, in his usual whimsical way. On the way, we managed to stop in NYC just in time to sneak in to the musical tribute for Pete Seeger at Lincoln Center with three of my sisters.
Jim was always up for a spontaneous trip somewhere. Now he's done it again, big time. Dancing ecstatically until he went "Beyond the Box of Space and Time" (in tribute to the theme of his book*). May his journey be forever blessed with love, peace, joy, harmony and beauty. To his total liberation. <AAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaa
