Designed for those without access to teachers, the online course series features senior Shambhala teachers, an online community of participants, and facilitation by experienced course leaders.

- Buddhist teachings on how our sense of self arises moment by moment to provide a reference point.

- Join a virtual community for discussion, contemplation and dialogue exercises.
