    Since 1975, Steve Seely has studied and practiced under the guidance of Shambhala’s founder, Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, and his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He was a faculty member of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche’s Nitartha Institute for Higher Buddhist Studies for many years, and was also a faculty member for Shambhala’s Ngedön School. He completed the traditional Kagyü Tibetan Buddhist 3-year retreat under the guidance of the Venerable Thrangu Rinpoche in 1996 and is a senior teacher in the Shambhala tradition. He lives with his wife and daughter in Longmont, and loves to go straight up the mountain trails of Colorado on a clear high-country day.
