He will help us translate the ancient principles of Tibetan Buddhism into modern insight to our times, and to the journey of forgiveness.

Dr. Dean Nelson studied with the renowned Tibetan Meditation Master Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche for 13 years, beginning in 1974. He has taught principles of peace to first graders, doctors, Marines, veterans and prison inmates.

He was a professional dancer and holds an M.F.A. in Choreography from University of Utah and a B. A. from University of Hawaii. He works as a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Nationally Certified Acupuncturist. He is founder of WindHorse HealthCare, the Kailua Shambhala Meditation Center and author of "Don't Waste Pain."
