Knowing Time – Online Course

Tuesdays, May 9th – June 13, 9:30am-11am
Instructor: Robin Caton

Revelations of Mind leads us on an exploration of mind, time and the nature of reality. What do we find at the smallest point of re-cognition, the “unit of experience that allows perception to take place”? How does the dynamic of time create a field of opportunity for the mind? The more we understand, the more reactive patterns slow, releasing the fear of impermanence. Natural clarity and inner light then have space to appear. The technology we use allows active participation in class discussion from students everywhere!

Second Level courseSecond Level courses are for those who have already taken two or more Dharma College courses and are ready to move more deeply into the material. If you have not yet met those requirements, the consent of the instructor is required to join a Second-level course.


 

Path to Wholeness

Wednesdays, May 10-June 14, 10:30am-12pm
Instructor: Robin Caton

Robin_edited

We continue our year-long journey into understanding mind. Dimensions of Mind and Keys of Knowledge, new texts by Tarthang Tulku, open a path to wholeness, which, as the author says, is never wholly for ourselves. For real wholeness is always communicated to others in spreading ripples of positive influence and deep appreciation.” This term, we focus on how to question mind.

Perspectives and Boundaries: The Limits of Being Me

Wednesdays, May 10-June 14, 5:30 – 7pm
Instructor: Robin Caton

Robin_edited

What does it mean to be ‘me’ in the world? Is the mind locatable in space and time? Can the likes and dislikes, needs, wants and emotions that currently define us shift as easily as a dream? In this new course we will look closely at the inner ‘perspectives and boundaries’ that appear to establish I, Me, Mine, and Mind. The ongoing nature of identity may not be as real as it seems. With more understanding of what it is simply ‘to be’, there is more ease and a greater freedom of choice.

Week One, May 9: Mind, An Introduction

Week Two, May 16: The Language of Self

Week Three, May 23: Observing Identity Structures

Week Four, May 30: Subject and Object: A Marriage Made in Mind

Week Five, June 6: ‘Me’ Through Time

Week Six, June 13: ‘I Am’—or Am I?

First Level courseFirst level courses are for students who are beginning or continuing their studies at Dharma College. They are open to everyone, with no prerequisites.


 

Beyond the Dualism of Subject and Object

Wednesdays, May 10-May 24, 5:30-7pm,
Instructor: Jack Petranker

Jack Petranker

Studying the mind encourages us to ask questions that usually go unexplored. One of the most fundamental questions is the identity of the one who is asking. The operation of the self as doer, questioner, and experiencer is basic to our experience. But if we ask lightly, we can find a way into the center, where experience arises differently. This continuing course works with Dimensions of Mind and is for those who have taken “Self-Liberation” or who have the consent of the Instructor.

Note this class will meet for three weeks only. Students in this course will have the option to continue on with ‘Perspectives and Boundaries’ for the remainder of the semester.


 

Embodying the Positive

Thursdays, May 11-June 15, 1:30-3pm, at Rossmoor, in Walnut Creek.
Instructor: Robin Caton

For those who have taken “Practicing the Positive” or with the consent of the Instructor.


 

Practicing with Beauty and Joy

Thursdays, May 11-June 15, 6:30-7:30pm,

Based on Dimensions of Mind and other recent texts by Tarthang Tulku.

Revealing Mind

Fridays, April 14-June 9, 10-11:30am,
Instructor: Richard Dixey

In this ongoing course about mind, identity and the nature of reality, we study Revelations of Mind for the third or fourth time. [These] readings move deeper, toward seeing specific self-interpretations and readouts in action in your immediate experience. At this point, you could say, ‘Now I see what I am doing.

Students must have the consent of the director to join.
