Who We Are

TSEGYALGAR EAST  is the location of the North American center for the Dzogchen Community founded by Tibetan Dzogchen master, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. Now in our 30th year, Tsegylagar East is home to our main administrative offices, dorm and gonpa; a rural retreat center known as Khandroling; and the US cultural organizations Shang Shung Institute of Tibetan Studies and A.S.I.A.

Members of the Dzogchen Community are a diverse and multi-generational group dedicated to practicing in the lineage of Chögyal  Namkhai Norbu.  Practices include Khaita Dance, Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dance, Guru Yoga and many secondary practices to meet different circumstances.

We are located at 18 Schoolhouse Road in Conway, MA in the old Conway grammar school, an historical building in the town.
