International Dzogchen Community Membership
2024 New Membership or Renewals

Membership is a joyful aspect of our Sangha’s Samaya! It is an essential participation in the transmission of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. And, by his vision and design, a concrete way for us to unite our strength and capacity in the fullest expression of the knowledge of the primordial state.

We infinitely prefer you register in the way best suitable to you rather than choose not to register or renew your membership due to the manifestation of any unfavorable secondary conditions.
