FEATURED AS "NEW & NOTEWORTHY" BY APPLE 2013-2014 ***
Urban Dharma NC is a new Buddhist center, a community-in-progress in western North Carolina. We are committed to the growing of Dharma, for Dharma to take roots in our lives here in this corner of the world, in this part of North Carolina, on the soil of these Appalachian mountains. Our motto "Changing Minds, Transforming Cities" expresses the vision of living the transformative teachings of the Buddha in a contemporary, urban context where we ground our lives in Dharma. Urban Dharma NC emphasizes integrating rather than compartmentalizing, engaging rather than retreating, communing rather than isolating. ***
We believe that Buddhist teachings have much to offer, not only to those who self-identify as Buddhist, but more fundamentally to all who seek to live intentional, compassionate, and balanced lives. And we believe that we can do this best when we have a community that is welcoming open and supportive. ***
Introductory topics include: meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, Tibetan Buddhism, Chinese Buddhism ***
Advanced topics include: Vajrayana, the Drikung Kagyu tradition, Chod, Milarepa, Tara, and more. ***

Precious & Relatively Unique

This podcast is a MUST for U.S./Western Dharma practitioners looking to learn and practice Tibetan Buddhism. NC is truly blessed to have this dharma center, its local & visiting teachers, its leaders and its community. As a model that is sorely lacking in the Los Angeles CA area, NC Urban Dharma is an extremely valuable recourse and gift to all Tibetan Buddhist practitioners around the nation and the world. May this center's teachers and community continue to have the causes for them to continue and to grow their work for the benefit and supreme enlightenment of all sentient beings.

Outstanding Buddhist teachings

This is a wonderful collection of Buddhist teachings. There is a variety in both topic and teaching that I greatly appreciate. Many of the shorter teachings are rich and concentrated talks on a specific topic. Some of the longer teachings seem to transport one to the center itself over the course of many sessions. Easy to follow and understand. The podcast has made my commute much more enjoyable. A real blessing.
