A Weekend Program of teachings and practice

Green Tara 2

with Mitra Lee Worley
Nalandabodhi Mitra & Professor Emerita of Naropa University

Tara, most beloved and foremost among the feminine Buddhist lineage, can clear away all fears and negative emotions and assist beings in reaching enlightenment. During this program of meditation-in-action, we will combine physical exercises, talks and discussion with Tara meditations. This short Tara practice which was composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche can help subdue our cowardice, troubles and anxiety and support us in opening our own heart of fearless compassion.

LEE WORLEY, a student of Buddhism for over 40 years, is a senior teacher in the Nalandabodhi and Shambhala traditions. She is part of the Nalandabodhi Mitra Council, a group of Western teachers appointed by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. “Mitra” is derived from the Sanskrit kalyanamitra, meaning spiritual friend.

Lee is the author of Coming from Nothing: The Sacred Art of Acting (Turquoise Dragon Press, 2001), and Teaching Presence: Field Notes for Players (Naropa University Press, 2018).

Mahayana 304

Yogachara, Mind Only, and Shentong

January. 22 – March 5, 7:00-8:30pm

This class is based on developing an experiential understanding of how mind functions. We will look at the Three Natures or the three levels of operation according to the Yogacharya.  This will involve looking at mind’s endless projections and how they create delusion and suffering.  We will contrast Madhyamaka and Yogacharya and see how Shentong approaches the qualities of Buddha Nature. Two meditation practicums will be included with the themes of “The Four Yogic Practices” and “Resting in Mind’s Natural Luminosity”.  This class looks at how we get caught in our web of confusion and gives us a practical path to overcoming our mistaken views.
When: Jan.22 – March 5,  7 Tuesdays from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.
Cost:  $60 for members and $70 for non members. The text is $15.
Location: 100 Arapahoe Ave., #6, Boulder, CO.
Please come and join us for this very profound class!

Winter Kado

The practice of ikebana or the path of flowers is a beautiful practice and contemplative path.

It teaches us that everyone has the instinct and courage for artistic talent.

Skill develops with curiosity, receptivity, guidance from a trained instructor, and practice.

Please join us for the opportunity to learn basic patterns of harmony and mindfulness in working with branches, flowers, water, space, intuition and elegance.

Classes cover the basics of ikebana from how to cut a stem to how to place plant materials in a container.

There will also be readings and exercises on perception and contemplation to allow for reflection and appreciation while new perspectives and creativity flourish.

Class is always open for each student at their own pace, exploring varied materials, themes and the Sogetsu curriculum.

There will be both beginners and more experienced students in the classes.
