This course and its curriculum have been designed by Pema Khandro Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist teacher, and scholar. She is an American born Lama who specializes in the tradition of Tibet’s Buddhist Yogis and the Dzogchen teachings. Ordained in the Nyingma lineage, enthroned as a tulku, and trained as an academic, Pema Khandro’s teachings celebrate the dynamic coalescence of tradition and the modern context. Pema Khandro is the founder of Ngakpa International, Dakini Mountain Retreat Center, the Yogic Medicine Institute, and three residential centers. For more information visit www.PemaKhandro.org
Pema Khandro first taught the course in 2001. She has developed an online version of the course in order to give support and deep training to friends and students around the world, who may not be able to travel to attend in person.
The course will also be led by two of her senior students, Aruna Rig’dzin and Satya Shiva. Aruna and Satya have studied closely with Pema Khandro since 2001. They have attended this training five times, attended all of Pema Khandro Rinpoche’s courses and they trained intensively under her supervision.
About the Training
The training includes a study of the postures for meditation, breathing techniques, the five key meditation techniques from Zhine, (also known “Calm Abiding), common obstacles to meditation, remedies for obstacles of meditation and more. We will also review the most important Buddhist teachings to support meditation practice – looking to the wealth of Buddhist philosophy for new perspectives on what is mind, how to work with thoughts and emotions, what is the body-mind connection and how body and mind can be harnessed for awakening.
