Our Sunday morning classes will offer you the full sequence of Lamrim meditations over the course of 2021. Each month a different part of the Lamrim sequence is explored. Taught by Resident Teacher Trina Gunther, each class includes: a preliminary meditation to reduce distractions and quiet the mind followed by a short chanted prayer, the presentation of a Lamrim meditation including guided meditation, and an opportunity for questions.

In the Foundation Program, we engage in the systematic study of key Buddhist texts in order to gain a deep and lasting understanding and experience of the spiritual path, as well as an authentic confidence as a meditator and practitioner. These study classes also help us to become part of a community of practitioners who are sincerely putting the teachings into practice.

With weekly reading assignments from the text, as well as commentary, discussions and meditations on the week’s readings, these study classes create the conditions for us to develop deep inner experience of the teachings.

Wishfulfilling Jewel is a special practice for developing compassion, wisdom, and spiritual strength by relying on the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa, and for overcoming obstacles and difficulties in our meditation (Dharma) practice by relying on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

These classes are suitable for beginners, as well as those with an established meditation practice. Each class includes meditation, a teaching, discussion and opportunity to ask questions.

In this transference of consciousness, through concentration, compassion, faith, prayers, and mantras the participants assist in directing the consciousness of the recently deceased directly to the Pure Land, where they will be free from suffering and experience true happiness forevermore.

Extensive Prayers to Dorje Shugden

A Dharma Protector is an emanation of a Buddha or Bodhisattva whose main functions are to avert the inner and outer obstacles that prevent practitioners from attaining spiritual realizations, and to arrange all the necessary conditions for their practice.

Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector, which means he specializes in helping us keep our minds off delusions and on Dharma. One way he does this is by helping us transform all appearances into the spiritual path, opening our wisdom eyes so that we know what to do with each situation as it arises, generating Dharma minds such as renunciation, compassion, or wisdom.

In today's society we are very knowledgeable about our human body, all its organs and systems, cells and tissues. We are less familiar with the subtle anatomy of our body, which is critical for experiencing and realizing our more subtle levels of consciousness.

In this workshop we will be introduced to Buddha's Tantric teachings on our body's subtle system of channels, drops and winds, also known as the vajra body. It is through our knowledge and meditation on these subtle features of our body that we can gradually manifest our root mind of clear light and accomplish great bliss.

Join this challenge if you are interested in a very happy week that will help you with the rest of your life!

Rejoicing is the Buddhist mind that is often commonly known as practicing “gratitude.” Buddhist rejoicing meditations are naturally joyful and uplifting. They are easy antidotes to depression, discouragement and jealousy.

With Buddhist rejoicing, we tap into a deep feeling of appreciation and then let our mind soak in this happiness, like a hot-tub of joy. Once we cultivate the mind of rejoicing in meditation we can easily bring it into our daily life, even while relaxing alone or with friends and family.

Each 45-minute video stream will be available for three days. Watch, listen, and be guided in meditation on your own schedule. Suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. Everyone is welcome.
