Lodro Rinzler is a teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage and has taught numerous workshops at meditation centers, businesses, and college campuses throughout North America for the past 15 years.
He began meditating as a child and sat retreats as a teenager. During college, Lodro became a Vajrayana student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and established Buddhist House, an 18-person dorm at Wesleyan University that hosts a large meditation room. He began teaching meditation at that time.
