Lama Karma Chime Shore
Chime Shore founded the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre near Nelson, New Zealand and the Origins Centre in Western Australia. He has studied and taught for over 30 years and received ordination in the Theravadin and Vajrayana traditons of Buddhism. He has studied with many eminent teachers such as H.H. the XVIth Karmapa, Ven. Kalu Rinpoche, Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche and Ven. Sayadaw U Thila Wunta. He is a warm, compassionate man who teaches in a straight-forward way, and his wealth of experience in working with a wide variety of people—combining both the spiritual and the worldly—is rare. Chime Shore is involved in community-based projects in New Zealand and Western Australia and has worked in the mental health system aiding people in personal recovery. He is a father to three sons and is also an artist and sculptor. Originally from Canada, he now resides in Perth and teaches mostly in Australia and New Zealand.
