Tuesdays, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Sep 3, 10, 17, 2019; Oct 1, 15, 22, 29; Nov 5
(8 classes; no class Sep 24 & Oct 8)
In this Discovering Buddhism Module, we will look at ways to transform our thoughts, using methods known as mind training. We will look at the source of our problems, and in doing that we can reduce them, and actually transform them into the causes for our own happiness. This in turn, leads to our ability to cherish and support others more naturally and effectively.
In this course, you will learn meditations as well as other techniques which can be used throughout your day to help create the transformation and happiness you seek. This course includes lecture, meditation and plenty of time for questions and answers.
Everyone is welcome!
Although it is part of the Discovering Buddhism program, anyone is welcome to attend — you do not have to have attended previous modules.
Having a long-held interest in the mind's capacity for transformation, Ven. Gyalten Palmo left home to spend 4½ months in India with an enlightened master in the late 1970's. Ven. Palmo started studying Tibetan Buddhism at the turn of the century. She has studied closely under Ribur Rinpoche, Choden Rinpoche, Geshe Ngawang Dakpa and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. She went on to complete the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition's (FPMT) Basic Program coursework and retreats. In 2012, she was ordained by Choden Rinpoche at Sera Jey Monastic University in India. As an FPMT-registered teacher, she has been teaching Discovering Buddhism regularly at Tse Chen Ling Center in San Francisco since 2013. Ven. Palmo loves studying and sharing the Dharma with others.
