NDF_logo_squareNatural Dharma Fellowship is a Buddhist community that supports the transmission and cultivation of contemplative and ethical practices for a better world. We believe that the inner development of compassion and wisdom facilitates authentic transformation in our workplace, family, relationships, community and society as a whole. We support the transmission of traditional Buddhist lineage teachings and also encourage an active and ongoing integration of these teachings into the many contexts of modern American life. We offer programs for caregivers, artists, educators, activists, and the LGBT community, as well as a robust program of training for those wishing to follow the traditional Buddhist path. Guided by Lama Willa Miller, our non-profit organization supports practice groups in the Northeastern United States, and offers contemplative retreats at our retreat center in New Hampshire, Wonderwell Mountain Refuge. Our core teachers are trained primarily in the Tibetan tradition of Buddhism (the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages), but we host teachers from other wisdom traditions as well.
