Program Description:

You may attend just one class, or the entire series of three classes.

This innovative weekly group practice session* is a precious opportunity to benefit from Ven Steve’s decades of experience as a Tibetan Buddhist monastic and to benefit from inspiration he has derived from classes with His Holiness the Dalai Lama 🌞🌞🌞.

All levels of practitioner, from complete beginner up, are welcome to join. Each week we will start with meditation upon the breath and then settle down into a state of being that is “at home” with the pure nature of mind. Then we will loosen up the sense of self, engaging in a way of meditating on emptiness that is not overly technical. Then, on top of this, we will meditate on Bodhichitta … This is the warm heart associated with the natural human quality of kindness that His Holiness refers to so often when he is teaching, and also personally embodies in such an inspiring way.

* Please note this is an experiential practice, not a guided meditation.


About The Instructor:

Ven. Steve Carlier resides at Land of Medicine Buddha, teaching the Basic Program as well as other courses. He has been studying Buddhism since 1977 and was ordained as a Buddhist monk by Lama Zopa in 1979, then receiving full ordination from Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche the following year. He studied for eleven years at Nalanda Monastery in France, and from 1993 to 2004 was one of only a handful of Westerners who have followed the Nalanda (India) tradition of studies at Sera Monastery in India. He has interpreted for several of the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism.
