Julie Heegaard
Resident Director, Osel Ling Mindrolling

I am the Resident Director of Ösel Ling Mindrolling International, which is the umbrella organization for Mindrol Ösel Ling Buddhist Meditation Center and Heartwood Center for Alternative Medicine.  Ösel Ling operates with the guidance and oversight of H.E. Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, a world-renown Tibetan Buddhist teacher in the Mindrolling lineage of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism.  My main focus at this time is overseeing the activities of the Buddhist Meditation Center.   I would not say I am an “expert” in any way, but I have been practicing Buddhist for almost 20 years and have been teaching on various Buddhist subjects for about 10 years and feel I have a fairly good grounding in the path and practices of Buddhism as elaborated through the Tibetan tradition.
