Buddha taught that we all have a naturally conscious and loving presence. However, we get distracted by our reactions to life situations and develop habits of mind that overshadow our original nature. We will explore how the Buddhist point of view guides the way to remembering the true heart/mind of compassion. This six week class covers the basics of Buddhism and the three main approaches to the tradition. Michael Stevens is the author of Being an Ordinary Buddha: Practicing the Natural Mind. This text is optional and can be purchased at class for those interested.
Ngöndro Practice: Teachings and Transmission
Sunday, January 19, 10am—4pm, $30 suggested donation
The foundation of all Vajrayana practices is the Ngöndro. If we accomplish this profound process, we have an understanding of all other practices in our lineage. We will explore the Dudjom Tersar Ngöndro and receive transmission to ignite our personal practice. *Bring a lunch or snack. This will be part of the teaching.
