After returning to the United States, he had the fortunate opportunity to meet Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and be introduced to the view and practise of Dzogchen. Steven immersed himself in the Santi Maha Sangha program which Rinpoche started in the 1990s and became an active participant in the establishment of Tashi Gar Norte in 2002. He served on their Gakyil or Board from 2008-2013. Rinpoche authorized him to teach in 2010 and he has been travelling throughout South America and Europe giving courses on the Santi Maha Sangha base during the last eight years, and giving public courses on mindful presence. He is currently serving as the president of the International Dzogchen Community.
