Meditation: The Way of the Buddha - A Six-Week Online Course
Learn or refresh your connection to the practice of meditation as taught by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, based on archival talks in the summer of 1974 to an audience of new students. Although decades old, these presentations retain the same freshness and dynamism as when they were first brought from Tibet to the West, and are a reminder of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s incomparable mastery at communicating Buddhist teachings to a Western audience. These short talks - from mindfulness practice, to awareness practice, to the realization of emptiness - will be supported by further commentary and facilitated discussions by some of today’s leading teachers of Buddhism in the West, many of whom were actually present during these talks in 1974, including:
Pema Chödron, Dale Asrael, Dorje Loppon Lodro Dorje, Gaylon Ferguson, Arawana Hayashi, Marty Janowitz, Larry Mermelstein, and Judith Simmer-Brown.
This course also includes the possibility of connecting in-person (or online) with a local study group in cities and regions where there are multiple registrants.
