What the Buddha Taught: Lojong - Training the Mind & Cultivating Loving Kindness ONLINE Study Group (Alternate Tuesdays)

with Stephen Burns & Larry Wolf

March 17th—May 26th

    Room: Online Program (See description for details)

    Beginning on Tuesday, March 17 (and continuing on alternate Tuesday evening for the months of April and May) the study group will read, study, and contemplate the 52 slogans that are part of the mahayana teachings of Lojong, or Training the Mind. By training the mind, we mean that we reflect on our thoughts and behavior as a means of reversing our habitual tendencies toward self-centeredness. In addition to seeing our obstacles, slogan practice opens up a field of tenderness and strength so that our actions are based on appreciation rather than the ongoing cycle of hope and fear. 

    Study sessions, conducted through zoom videoconferencing, include a short period of meditation, reading excerpts of the material out loud, and contemplating and discussing the material (shared upon registration). Participants may decide to use the time between sessions to contemplate the slogans discussed at the prior session. Additional reading is provided prior to each session for optional study.  Newcomers welcome, and you needn't attend all sessions (including the first - participate as it works for you)
