About the teacher:
Cecilia was born in Mexico City and has used meditation techniques in different stages of her life to improve quality and health. In 1989 she met her root teachers, Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl. In 2000, per Lama Ole’s request, Cecilia started to teach in México, where she helped to start and establish different Diamond Way Buddhist groups and centers, and since 2012 she has been teaching Diamond Way Buddhism abroad in Latin America, Spain, Russia, Poland, Check Republic, and USA. Cecilia lives near México City in a small town Metepec with her husband Carlos, where she started the Diamond Way Center. Cecilia works as a Clinical Psychologist, helping children with learning, emotional and behavior problems. In her free time, she paints, rides motorcycles, and facilitates adaption of abandoned animals by responsible people and families.
Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Las Vegas belongs to an international non-profit network of over 700 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.
Diamond Way Buddhism offers practical and effective methods to realize mind’s inherent richness for the benefit of all. With an accessible and modern style, it works with people’s confidence and desire, using every situation in life to develop fearlessness and joy. We always present a basic introduction for newcomers, and the meditations are guided in English.
For more than a millennium, the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism has transmitted some of the most powerful meditation methods Buddhism has to offer. Today, these transformative approaches are available in Diamond Way Buddhist centers throughout the Western world.
