Damien Brohon (b. 1969) has been studying and practising Dharma for 30 years in the Kagyü, Nyingma and Bön lineages, and has followed courses at the Institut National des Langues Orientales, Collège International de Philosophie, École Pratique des Hautes Études and Institut Khyentse Wangpo.

As a Rigpa teacher, Damien's main focus is on Buddhist philosophy. He has taught on this subject for many years in courses, weekends and retreats in French-speaking countries, as well as in other settings, such as the Institut d’Études Bouddhiques and Institut Khyentse Wangpo. He also gives conferences on ‘Art and Spirituality’.

Damien has a deep wish to contribute to a profound change in Rigpa's culture: one that is based on transparency, ethics, and an increased importance given to study as a means for students to follow their path with complete clarity and safety.

Damien accepted the nomination of 'Rigpa Senior Teacher' in August 2021. Senior Teachers are those who take responsibility for overseeing and guiding the study and practice of the Rigpa sangha internationally; they teach on a wide range of Dharma topics and teach both Rigpa sangha and public audiences.

His first publication, Au Travers du Visible, offers an exploration of the contemplative dimension of seeing, drawing heavily, but not exclusively, on the Dharma. It is intended for experienced practitioners as well as for anyone wishing to deepen their experience of 'seeing' and life.
