Deepening Compassion: Lojong and Compassionate Engagement

The spiritual path does not lead to non-activity and withdrawing from the world. In the Shambhala tradition, the master warrior is profoundly engaged. 

He or she can rest in space, but doesn’t hold on to that experience… 

Rather, the increased relaxation and openness allow the warrior to manifest and respond in a way that is skillful and wise, because completely in touch with what is going on. 

This course explores the teachings on Lojong, Atisha's famous mind-training slogans, that invite us to utilize the difficulties and problems we encounter to deepen our path. Rather than seeing the unwanted aspects of life as obstacles, they can be viewed as the raw material necessary for awakening genuine uncontrived compassion, for ourselves and others.

The course includes:

  • Recorded classes.
  • Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
  • Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives
  • A discussion forum.
