Patrick Sweeney was empowerd by the Vajra Regent, Osel Tendzin, in 1989 to carry on the lineage transmission of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Since the Regent's death in 1990, he has studied, practiced and taught under the direction of prominent lineage teachers. His aspiration is to develop a method of teaching and transmission uniquely suited to the Western mind and culture. Patrick Sweeney has practiced hatha yoga for over twenty years and has developed an approach to teaching the buddhadharma using yogic methods to support meditation practice. His yoga instruction is drawn from the traditional yogic disciplines of Tibetan Buddhism and the tantric teaching of India. Thrangu Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche have encouraged his integration of yogic discipline into fomal Buddhist practice.
