This is a continuation course for students who have taken Searcher Reaches Land’s Limits Part 1-4.  

Mind itself has rarely been the subject of serious observation and sustained inquiry that can reveal a way of understanding that dissolves our problems and blossoms into creative freedom. Tarthang Tulku’s seminal book, Revelations of Mind, is a rare exception, a contemporary teaching for liberating the modern mind. This six-week course will work from Searcher Reaches Lands Limits, an in depth commentary on Tarthang Rinpoche’s Revelations of Mind

This flagship course at Dharma College explores how we construct experience moment to moment, leading to a sense of constriction and alienation, and how we can allow our innate freedom to manifest in the center of experience. It is also a powerful call for action to heal our emotional and cognitive embodiment and so be released to help others in an increasingly fractured world. Combining core elements of Asian wisdom traditions with modern analytical insight, this seminal work is a life changing experience for all those who engage with it.


" These classes the teacher, are of the highest calibre- not presenting a comfortable, feel good meditation but expertly presenting trusted tools to avoid getting trapped, tricked in the mind regime, the perspective we have all been presented…how to ‘thaw, to ‘cut through’, invite the dynamic interplay of Space, Time, Knowledge that is our true being, the only real reality… "
Morgan M.
" Really helpful in helping me understand my mind... answering questions I have had for many years.  Look forward to more learning and study and practice with Dharma College. "
