My name is: Penpa Dolma, was born in Tibet, grew up in a boarding school for Tibetan refugees in India under the guidance of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Now living in the sunny state of Colorado where you can legally get high and climb your mountains. What a journey !
I teach: yoga but that’s my sneaky way to get people into meditation and vigilant introspection by constantly bringing focus back to the habits of mind, breathe and its physical manifestation.
Why I signed up for The Great eCourse Adventure: I think eCourses done well are effective ways of educating, spreading information and creating changes. There are lots of contents/beads wanting to be made into a rosary/mala. The usual way of manifestation with lots of effort, resistance and seriousness is not attractive to me. It is counterproductive to me core being. So I love the invitation to the GEA with playfulness, with purpose, with sincerity, with innovation and intensity. Sangha community that is developing here is already inspiring and I hope the good juju here rubs off on me. 🙂
What makes me come most alive is: Diving deep into the ocean of patterns, habits and stories, and how our identities are shaped by these stories. And the freedom to rewire, redirect, and restart every moment.May 30, 2016 at 1:35 pm #23811
Welcome to the mountain. So excited to see how you bring your unique experience into your awesome new ecourse, and to see what you create! Happy trekking! And there’s totally good juju around here – enjoy soaking it up!

Really thrilled to have you here on the mountain with us. I have a good friend who grew up in Tibet as well and was forced to flee. The stories I’ve heard are hard to imagine. Deep respect for your life journey. I’m sure you have so much you can share and in my experience as a teacher, I have yet to find a more powerful platform than eCourses to share from.
It’s great that you found your way here. I’m excited to help you ground your vision, see it through and launch it out into the world…. oh, and let’s have a bunch of fun doing it!
Welcome 🙂May 31, 2016 at 8:25 am #23903
What a beautiful story, so happy to have you on the mountain and see what you manifest! I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I have without the purposeful play going on in this adventure, so I bet you’ll feel right at home 🙂 Happy hiking!May 31, 2016 at 3:03 pm #23945
Thank you so much Lisa, Brad and Jessica for the warm welcome. I am looking forward to the unfolding of this journey. Grateful to be in a company of beautiful minds and hearts.
At the moment, I am not clear on what kinda eCourse I want to create, I just know it’s there, asking me to release it out but I have a very vague idea of what that looks like.
I find myself get easily overwhelmed especially in a thriving environment, survival has been a reality for so long that the habit of fear is always just around the corner waiting for me to slip by. But there is also a confidence and a trust that all of this can be reconciled.
@ Brad, Wonderful that you had a chance to hear a refugee’s story in person. Even when people ask me I find it really hard to share personal details. I think what do they matter now? The world hardly cares no matter how many burn their bodies in self-immolation in Tibet asking for freedom. The global economic power are kowtowing the Chinese market and making political decisions based on them.
And partly because I don’t resonate with the story anymore. I have lived more than a Tibetan perspective and there is pain everywhere. Studying dharma sincerely and living the path kinda ruined it for me.
“later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
where does it hurt?
everywhere.” ― Warsan Shire
Can one go and live this life without any story? Do you choose the story or the story chooses you?
thanks for all the love. 🙂
