COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Foundations is an 8-week program for students of all levels – no pre-requisites or meditation experience required.

Our world is currently flooded with various meditation courses of a secular nature, focusing mainly on “mindfulness” from a Western or New Age perspective. This unique course, however, will guide students through the principles and practice of meditation from a Tibetan Buddhist perspective.

Tibetan Buddhism meditative techniques require a specific set of practices and mind training. These practices will be based on Tibetan Buddhists texts, such as the Lam Rim (The Graduated Path to Enlightenment), which follows 1000-year-old traditions.

Kushok has a wonderful ability to take these deep teachings and distill them into practical steps for the lay practitioner. Students of all levels of practice, including beginners, will gain immense benefit from this training.

Upon completion of this course, you will:

  • Have an understanding of how to start your own meditation practice
  • Have an understanding of Mindfulness as a Calm Abiding technique in Tibetan Buddhist practice
  • Have an understanding of foundational meditation practices within the context of Tibetan Buddhism
  • Have the confidence to lead informal groups in guided meditation

This course is ideal for:

  • Teachers and educators
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Wellness professionals
  • Anybody with an interest in learning Buddhist meditation!

This course will be facilitated live in-person and over Zoom. All students will receive access to Zoom recordings.
