Upcoming Series

Wonders of the Present Moment

First and Third Tuesdays 7:00- 8:30 June 7 to August 16 2022

The present moment offers us freshness and surprise. Drifting to the past and future, ordinary thinking plasters over everything with long-worn images, hopes, and fears. Same old, same old. One of the deep insights brought forward in Buddhist philosophy and practice is that the closer we can get to the present moment, the closer we are to being fully present to our lives, to our true nature, and to freedom from the same old habits that don’t work for us.

It’s summertime. Time to give ourselves space to be with ourselves and our experience. This series of practice and teachings coming this summer bring you a variety of ways of coming into the present moment. We are drawing on traditional Buddhist practice as well as modern insights in mind-heart science to bring you closer to what matters in your life. Because this is something we can find most vibrantly in the present moment.

These practices bring you fresh appreciation of your own living body, heart, and mind.

This class will be presented by Lama Rigzin Drolma, Lama Namgyal Dorje, Mark Yurewicz, and Dent Gitchell.

Current Series

Buddha Nature, Your Buddha Mind

First and Third Tuesdays 7:00- 8:30 January 18 to May 17 2022

An exceptional opportunity to hear for the first time newly translated descriptions of buddha nature – also known as the dharma-dhatu—the basic space or real realm in all of us. Dr. Nathaniel Rich and Dr. Renee Ford will lead you through meditations and conversations on newly translated sutras that give a very fresh understanding of the power of our luminous capacity for awakening.
