David completed his traditional training in a 4 year retreat in Dordogne France during the 1980s under the guidance of his main teachers, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche, Nyoshul Khenpo and Tulku Pema Wangyal. He has spent over 30 years studying and practicing Buddhism in Australia, Nepal, France and the USA under some of the most influential Tibetan teachers of this century.
