Tarthang Tulku, Gesture of Great Love, Light of Liberation
Come join us for a 7-week course as we study and practice Gesture of Great Love: Light of Liberation, the newest teachings presented by Tibetan Lama Tarthang Tulku. The ideas he offers here first emerged some fifty years ago, taking shape as the Time, Space, and Knowledge vision. Through guided exercises and clear, accessible language, these transformative teachings penetrate heart and mind to uncover the depths of our being.
As we face suffering honestly, cultivate emotional well-being, and actively inquire into the nature of identity, language, and time, we find we have a key to a new way of being. When the day becomes rich with joy and appreciation, emotions lighten, life-situations become easier to deal with, and we begin to dance creatively with whatever arises.
Classes meet online for seven weeks, 1.5 hours a week. Classes are recorded and accessible for six months. Each week features short presentations, experiential exercises, and discussion. Weekly handouts provide inspirational passages along with the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online community portal gives you the option to meet and be in dialogue with your fellow students.
