  • Activating Wisdom: Lotus Body 3

    May 3, 2022  10:00 am - 11:30 am

    This term, we focus on impermanence and the dynamics of ‘becoming’. Weekly exercises complement the reading as we explore the unity of matter, space and time. Prerequisite: Lotus Body, part 2 or permission of the Instructor........See Full Description

  • Searcher Reaches Land’s Limits (Section 2)

    May 4, 2022  11:00 am - 12:30 pm

    The second section of Searcher Reaches Lands Limits explores how to approach the path of meditation in ways which avoid major obstacles, misconceptions and traps. It is not uncommon for both novice and advanced meditators to be seduced by experiences deemed to be pleasant, peaceful, silent or unusual. However, simply calming or watching mind, or relying on a meditation practice without a view of how the regime of mind operates, is likely to lead to self-deception and will not penetrate deep mental obscurations. Section one provided us a clear view of how the regime of mind operates; now we begin to contemplate all that we have learned in deeper ways, inoculated against such deceptions. This sets the stage for us to traverse difficult terrain, transcending dualistic structures that obscure the nature of mind..... See Full Description

  • Lotus Mind: Have you ever truly been introduced to mind?

    May 13, 2022  10:00 am - 11:30 am

    This first term of Lotus Mind introduces us to ‘searching, knowing mind’ –the “boss” who judges and frames our experience and weaves the stories that create our identity. Through dialogue and active inquiry, we consider our stances toward thoughts, positioning as perceiver/ observer, as well as the calm and clarity of the yogi Milarepa’s play of ocean-mind. We may open up our potential to new knowledge and liberating ways of engagement....See Full Description

May 14, 2022
  • Practicing Embodiment, Field Work

    May 14, 2022  10:30 am - 11:30 am

    During this one-hour weekly class, students of Rinpoche’s Lotus Trilogy engage in contemplations and activities that help unbind and unwind the regime of mind’s production process. What is it like to settle into a home in which knowledge is integrated into our lives? As we activate wide-angle seeing, as deeper senses open up, changes in understanding and experience materially affect our conduct. If you have taken courses in the Trilogy and are looking for how to continue this study, you are welcome to join this practice. Each semester will take up one of the Lotus books: Lotus Mind  in May. .... See Full Description
