Training in Mindfulness

In modern society, mindfulness is commonly associated with stress-reduction and overall well-being. In Buddhism, training in mindfulness is essential for a successful meditation practice and accomplishing the experience of inner peace.

Through studying Buddha's teachings on mindfulness, we can understand the faults of distractions and the benefits of concentration, including how tranquil abiding can take us to the ultimate goal of enlightenment.

In this weekly meditation series, learn how to prevent distracting thoughts and improve mindfulness. Through training in mindfulness, you will improve your meditation practice and accomplish the experience of inner peace.


CLASS STRUCTURE

Each class includes guided meditations, teaching, and time for Q&A (not available for online-only classes). A brief introduction of the topic will be presented followed by a guided meditation to settle the mind, the main teaching, and a closing guided meditation.

The main teaching will cover the class topic. It includes an explanation of Buddhist practices and methods to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort. Reference to particular pages in books may be offered. It is not necessary to have the coursebook in order to benefit, but you may find it helpful. Further reading is always encouraged.

Each teaching ends with another guided meditation specifically to help students take the teaching to heart and be able to begin to practice on their own what they’ve learned in class.

Classes will be posted weekly throughout the course and will remain available for viewing for the length of the series. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.

Although it is beneficial to attend the entire series, you may drop in at any time. Classes are held weekly. Suitable for all levels of experience.


ABOUT THE BOOK
Within all of us lies a source of infinite bliss, clarity of wisdom, and compassion for others. In Clear Light of Bliss, a unique and highly praised book based on Buddha’s Tantric teachings, the contemporary Buddhist Master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, presents authentic methods for discovering this inner wealth for ourselves. In a clear and precise way, he explains step-by-step how we can generate a deeply peaceful and concentrated mind by harnessing the subtle energy system within our body.

With this blissful awareness we can uncover our true nature, destroy ignorance and suffering at its root, and swiftly become a source of inspiration and benefit for others. Clear Light of Bliss is a manual for Tantric meditation that reveals the most profound secrets of the ancient Yogis and makes their blissful experience accessible to the modern world.

Clear Light of Bliss can be purchased from our bookstore. Please contact our Treasurer, Brian Worthen, for details: 505-999-8656. It can also be purchased online at Tharpa.com.
