This is a continuation course for level 300 students. Everyone has the capacity to fully develop their abundant human potential. Through dialogue and active inquiry, we investigate the “weather”—all the conditions of mind. We may find that mind is indistinguishable from calm clarity; we may glimpse that sharing at bottom mind is the same unity: all lila—all play—inimitable and inexpressibly beautiful manifestations of mind


" Just reading the Lotus Language book on my own would not be helpful for me.  But using the book for discussion and practice is helpful beyond description.  The instructors bring in their ideas and the class members interact.  We do exercises together and play with the dialogs that Rinpoche has offered in the book ...as a starting point.  Putting all this together ( the content of the book, the instructors, the class participants) leads to very rich experiences and opportunities to see from new perspectives that offer more opportunities when dealing with challenging situations. Thank you! "

Classes meet online for seven to ten weeks per term, for one and a half hours a week. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings, for six months. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and discussion. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings and the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online community portal gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students
