Discovering Wisdom within Our Confusion

A  Weekend Intensive

October 27 – October 29, 2017

Vajrayana Buddhism teaches that there are five basic energies, inherent in all of us, known as the Five Buddha Families. This energetic expression can be seen in our attitudes, emotions, actions and interactions. During the weekend, we will use the Maitri Space Awareness practice designed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche as well as talks and discussions to explore our everyday experience of these energies in both their wisdom and confused aspects.

Prerequisites:  The program is open to students who have a good grounding in the practice of Shamatha, and to those who have completed the Nalandabodhi Hinayana and Mahayana Curriculum.
