The 3-part Great Ideas series summarizes all fifteen ACI Courses, which cover the basic ideas and books traditionally studied by Buddhist Masters.

In keeping with the ACI lineage, all teachings are offered free of charge.  Accommodations are offered at a modest rate. Questions? Contact our Program Director:


Venerable Gyelse has been interested in Buddhism since the age of 16, but it wasn’t until she was in her 40s that she had the good fortune to meet her Teacher, Geshe Michael Roach.  Venerable Gyelse has been a student of Asian Classics Institute and Geshe Michael for over 20 years.  She worked, studied, lived and taught at Diamond Mountain University for 6 years and then participated in a three year deep retreat to take her deeper into the teachings. Presently she lives, works and teaches at Diamond Mountain Retreat Center.
