About John Dunne

In this course, we will learn about the Buddhist philosophy that underpins the Chak-dzog style of practice. Here John explains the relevance of context and lineage, both in his own teaching style, but also in preparing us for this approach.

"When we talk about a Buddhist teaching or philosophy, we are also talking about the lineage that embodies this teaching or philosophy."
