Mark Webber

Mark Webber has been studying and teaching meditation and the path of awakening for over twenty five years in association with many eminent Buddhist scholars and teachers around the world, most recently in Nepal.

In addition to his meditation-oriented skills, Webber holds a masters degree in anthropology, is a professional gemstone cutter and sculptor, and has many years of experience as an arts administrator and educator.

As a child, Webber displayed a precocious intelligence and curiosity about the natural world. By age fifteen he was doing research in biochemistry in his own laboratory at the University of Toronto. At eighteen he encountered the Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche, the first westerner to be recognized as a realized being by any Tibetan Buddhist lineage.

Mark traveled and studied extensively with the Rinpoche, and was a Resident Teacher at the Dharma Centre of Canada, the oldest of forty centres dedicated to the study of Buddhist practice and philosophy established by Rinpoche around the world. Currently he is a Resident Teacher at the Crystal Mountain Retreat Centre on Galiano Island, BC.
