During this one-hour weekly class, students of Rinpoche’s Lotus Trilogy engage in contemplations and activities that help unbind and unwind the regime of mind’s production process. What is it like to settle into a home in which knowledge is integrated into our lives? As we activate wide-angle seeing, as deeper senses open up, changes in understanding and experience materially affect our conduct. If you have taken courses in the Trilogy and are looking for how to continue this study, you are welcome to join this practice. Practices and dialogues will be drawn from Lotus Mind through February of 2023, as well as from other teachings of Tarthang Tulku. Examples and inspiration also regularly come from what inspires in daily life.
Classes meet online for seven weeks, for one half-hour with an additional optional half-hour of questions with the Instructor. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and discussion. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings and the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students.
There is no homework.
