He is the son of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the outed alcohol-guzzling sex guru (who as an adult married a rich, 16-year-old kid in England) in the documentary "Crazy Wisdom" (clips on YouTube).

Tickets from $300 down to $50 for the panel

He finally crashed a sports car, nearly killed someone, and crippled himself.

It worked for world-famous American Buddhist nun Pema Chodron and the Naropa Institute but few others. Tickets are not cheap. More
