Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma
The Complete Teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
 with  Richard & Allison Driscoll
Fridays: September 8 - December 15, 2017 - 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Empowered Yoga Wilmington
Tuition: $144 for 12 weeks ($12 per class)

A complete map of the Tibetan Buddhist path from beginning to end, as taught by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is based on the teachings presented at the annual three-month meditation and study retreats known as the Vajradhatu Seminaries, which he led every summer from 1973 to 1986. 

We will continue with first volume, The Path of Individual Liberation, which presents the teachings of the hinayana. The hinayana introduces core Buddhist teachings on the nature of mind, the practice of meditation, the reality of suffering, and the possibility of liberation. It examines the nature of suffering, impermanence, and egolessness, with an emphasis on personal development through meditative discipline and study.

Please purchase The Path of Individual Liberation through amazon.com or shambhala.com. Please call Alison Driscoll if you did not attend the previous series, so she can orient you to the material: 302.290.7445.
