In Tibetan Buddhism the practices of Lojong comprise a profound yet practical method for cultivating wisdom and compassion, the hallmarks of the awakened mind. Lojong is a concise presentation of the entire path; it is said that when we practice this, we are practicing everything. For this five-week class, we will use as a basic text The Great Path of Awakening by Jamgon Kongtrul (Shambala 2005.) Having a text is highly recommended but not a requirement for participating in the class. Students may use a translation and commentary of their own choosing. If you decide not to purchase the Kongtrul text, you can read it online at this link: The Path of Great Awakening. Note that the page numbers are slightly different between the print and online versions.
This five-week class includes teaching, written instructions, guided meditations, and time for Q and A.
This course is offered on a sliding scale with option to invest $30, $60, or $90. Your generosity supports the teacher, the studio, and those of limited means.
