Chandra Easton teaches Tibetan Buddhism and Shadow Yoga in the Bay Area.
Chandra took refuge with H.H. 16th Karmapa when she was five years old and subsequently studied with many Tibetan & Western Buddhist teachers, such as H.H. Dalai Lama, Gyatrul Rinpoche, Adzom Paylo Rinpoche, Lama Pema Dorje, B. Alan Wallace, Lama Tsultrim Allione, and Jennifer Welwood.
In 1996, Chandra studied Buddhist philosophy, meditation and Tibetan language at the Library of Tibetan Works & Archives in Dharamsala, India, founded by H.H. Dalai Lama. She later received her degree from UCSB's Religious Studies Department where she translated Tibetan Buddhist texts with Buddhist scholar, B. Alan Wallace. In 2003 she completed her Dzogchen foundational practices, called the Longchen Nyingtig Ngondro.
Chandra has been teaching Buddhist meditation & philosophy for twelve years. She is authorized by B. Alan Wallace to teach Buddhist theory and practice and Lama Tsultrim Allione to teach Prajna Paramita, Feeding Your Demons, and Chod. She is currently on the Tara Mandala Bay Area coordinating committee, through which she teaches and organizes events in the Bay Area.
