Geshe Michael Roach & Christie McNally
Geshe Michael Roach and Christie McNally have written five books ― The Garden, The Diamond Cutter: the Buddha on Managing Your Business and Your Life, The Tibetan Book of Yoga, Essential Yoga Sutra, and How Yoga Works: Healing Yourself and Others through Yoga― with a sixth book soon to be released. They have translated dozens of ancient Sanskrit and Tibetan texts on Buddhism and Yoga Philosophy, usually working directly from antique folios newly discovered in libraries hidden in the heart of Asia.
They have completed a traditional Tibetan Buddhist three-year deep meditation retreat and are planning a second three-year retreat beginning in 2010.
They have also done numerous one and two-month formal, silent retreats. In 2003, they founded Diamond Mountain Retreat Center and University, where they serve as professors and spiritual directors. Located on 1000 acres in southern Arizona, it is modeled on an ancient Buddhist educational system. All classes are free of charge, and every day students have meditation, quizzes and traditional Tibetan debate in the style of Socrates.
Geshe Michael and Christie currently spend most of their time teaching worldwide. Last year alone, they taught in Taipei, Shanghai, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Mexico, Argentina, Bahamas, Canada, New York, Austin, Houston and Tucson, attracting thousands of people. For fifteen weeks a year, they live and teach at Diamond Mountain in Arizona
