Description of Organization
Ewam School of Tibetan Buddhism was established as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in 1999, in Arlee, Montana. Tibetan teacher Tulku Sang-ngag Tendzin Rinpoche established the Ewam as the international seat of all of his activities. Ewam is a religious, charitable and educational non-profit. The mission is to advance and cultivate spiritual awareness in the west and throughout the world, with particular emphasis on the study and practices of Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism, in its various aspects, including philosophical, psychological and medicine. Ewam’s teachers offer Buddhist retreats and teachings, throughout the year. Ewam also provides weekly Buddhist practice sessions at both of its Montana locations, in Arlee and Missoula, MT.
In 2011, Ewam was awarded a $10,000 grant to convene a series of three facilitated small group gatherings with 8-10 participants to explore in more depth questions raised during the Peace Festival in 2010 and 2011. Participants were from the tribal community on the Flathead Indian Reservation and from the Ewam sangha.
