Buddhist Author and Teacher

Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel has studied and practiced the Buddhadharma for 30 years under the guidance of her teacher and husband Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. Elizabeth is known for her willingness to question the entire path in order to reach a place of genuine practice and awakening. She asks audiences to engage in the practice of open questioning with her while she takes a fresh look at all the assumptions and beliefs we have about spirituality. Audiences repeatedly comment on how this approach has reinvigorated their meditation practice and the way they relate to their lives as a whole. She is the author of “The Power of an Open Question,” and her new book, “The Logic of Faith,” is coming out in 2018.
