Tory Capron

Victoria (Tory) Wolf Capron is the principle teacher for the Golden Bowl Foundation.

Inspired by Buddhism, particularly the crazy wisdom teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the body, nondual teachings, the natural world, and shamanism, Tory weaves together Buddhist practices, meditation, and psychology to challenge her students to be fearless and gentle in uncovering the truth of their own true nature and experiencing the sacredness of life.

Tory has been working with individuals, couples, women and groups for the last 25 years. From 1980-1996, her life and career was deeply connected with the natural world. She worked as a wildlife biologist, backcountry ranger, and wilderness guide. Tory has been practicing Buddhism since 1978, including 8 years of Zen training, 8 years of Vipassana, and since 1994 in the Tibetan tradition. Tory has studied with many teachers, and her root teachers are Chogyam Trungpa, Reggie Ray and Adyashanti. She became a Buddhist minister in 2000. Her Master’s degree in Buddhist studies included training in counseling, group facilitation, and chaplaincy. She is also certified in body-mind psychotherapy and Somatic Archeology. She has trained in shamanism, including shamanic journeying. Tory works with beginning students of meditation as well as being authorized to teach more advanced practices of the Vajrayana. She weaves deep embodiment and earth-based practices into all of her work.

Meditation and Embodiment in Nature
August 25 - 28, 2022

This retreat will explore internal and external quiet, the teachings of nature and the wisdom of the body. We will do this through meditation, movement and connection with the outdoors, spending as much time outside as the weather allows. In meditation practice we will connect with nature through all of our physical senses. Movement practices will include somatic meditations and mindful movement, which will nurture our relationship with our bodies, our intuition, the natural world, and the unknown. We will foster deep relationship with the Earth as our witness and healer. The retreat will contain some Ecodharma content, with our connection to nature naturally activating our care for protecting the environment. The retreat will be held in silence, with periodic interactive sessions.  There may light hiking during the program. This retreat will give you a break from news, work, and stress. It has the potential to relax you into presence, being and flow, as you meditate in the stunning mountain landscape of the Ecodharma Center.
