“When the iron bird flies, and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the world.
And the Dharma will come to the land of the Red Man.”
–Padmasambava, 9th Century Indian master who led the conversion of Tibet to Buddhism


Namchak LLC is a Montana limited liability company formed for the purpose of engaging in the development of the Namchak Retreat Ranch. The Namchak Retreat Ranch will be built on 9,000 acres of nearly pristine ranch land in Western Montana. The ranch land is privately owned land held in trust that is being developed for charitable use by the Namchak Foundation. The Namchak Foundation was founded in Montana to benefit humanity primarily by promoting the growth, study, and practice of the Namchak lineage of Tibetan Buddhism domestically and internationally. We do this through the website and by holding retreats and educational events in Western Montana. The Namchak LLC is a private entity that supports the mission of Namchak Foundation. The missions of the Namchak Foundation and the Namchak LLC will be closely aligned, and their leaders and staff will operate very closely together to carry out the organizations’ shared goals.

The Managing Director of the Namchak LLC will be primarily responsible for leading and managing a multi-faceted and unique endeavor that includes the creation of a web of student groups across the nation, and an online supported educational program. On the Namchak Retreat Ranch we will be building an extensive Tibetan Buddhist retreat complex, institute an extensive educational program there, with an agricultural and herbal business for supporting the above activities into the future.

To be successful, the Managing Director will bring clarity of vision, a voice of guidance, and a broad capability to carry multiple functional areas forward in a landscape where many competing priorities demand attention at once. They will benefit from partnering with a team of decision makers, but will also be an inspirational, business- minded leader who possesses innate strategic and operational excellence and has the capacity for leadership and inspiration. A community builder and mentor at heart, they should also bring a respect for and/or a personal dedication to a daily practice of reflection and meditation, which is authentically woven throughout their work. Given the nature and purpose of our organization, having an ongoing meditation practice at this time is not required but highly desirable.
