I think of the Sangyum as one of those practitioners, this would be the Sangyum of the previous Dudjom Rinpoche, and also Chagdud Khandro as one of those practitioners, but I don't see them as being famous, but they are relatively "well known". These last years Chagdud Khandro has given extensive teachings on Phowa . Perhaps the reason it is a little difficult to find on the net is because many of the Tröma Nagmo practitioners were "hidden yoginis" and still are imho, however there is a living female teacher of Tröma Nagmo who imho can pass this practice to students (especially the Tri (the teaching concerning Troma Nagmo) and that is Sangye Khandro of Tashi Choling Gompa located in the US, she has already taught details of Troma Nagmo practice on many occasions with her teachers over two decades. The Sadhana, and even a Tsalung associated with this can be learned at Tashi Choling etc there is also an archive for peopole, also Orgyen Dorje Den located in San Francisco does this practice. Many of Lama Tharchin's students do this practice, there is also recorded teachings:
Gyatrul Rinpoche's Archive:http://vimalatreasures.org/search.aspx?find=troma+nagmo
Lama Tharchin's archive:http://heartteachings.com/vidseries.html
I'm sure The Sangyum and her family of female practitioners (especially Sangyum's niece) are also living holders of this lineage, but I don't know if they actively teach the cycle at this time, so if you want to study from a living female teacher Tröma Nagmo, from a western female practitioner who isn't "famous" but quite "well known"... that would be Sangye Khandro imho, and also by extension Julie at Orgyen Dorje Den in San Francisco can lead this practice proficiently, and she does actively lead the Troma Sadhana for the Gompa in San Francisco.
