We offer online retreats, one-year-focused journeys, and a program covering the entire breadth of the Ganden and Dakini Ear-Whispered lineages of Chö.

We offer a series of self-paced online courses providing deep study mixed with meditation practice and resources for support. These range from the Buddhist foundations to Cho and Vajrayana practice.

About Dakini's Whisper
We are an international online sangha of Buddhist practitioners dedicated to bringing the ancient wisdom of the Ear-Whispered Chö (Chod) and Vajrayana to our modern-day lives.
All of DAKINI'S WHISPER's activities reflect our mission of nurturing our awakening to its deepest dimension through authentic Buddhadharma methods in an inclusive, accessible environment.
About Our Teacher
Chöying Khandro holds the complete transmissions of both the Mount of Bliss and Machik Dakini Ear-Whispered Lineages from her root lama, His Holiness, the late Ninth Khalkha Jetsün Dampa Rinpoche. Khandro-la is among the few students who have been with him since he began to teach in the West in the early 1990s.
In 2011, Chöying Khandro was presented with teaching robes and received Khalkha Rinpoche's permission to begin Dakini’s Whisper. Since meeting her teacher, Chöying Khandro has devoted her life to transmitting this rare and precious lineage and its teachings to the West.

Rima Fujita is a Japanese artist, known for her distinctive style with vivid colors on black surfaces. They are ethereal and evoke a timeless sense of longing and peace, and yet if examined deeply her images trigger a powerful ripple of infinite emotions. Her paintings express contemporary forms of Dakinis that are very much appreciated by Dakini Whisper.
