Intro to Integration Experiences [DB14]

Thursdays, April 7 - May 12

DB14 – lite

(not for teacher qualification)

This is an introduction to Discovering Buddhism module 14 – Special Integration Experiences – not a completion of those requirements. These classes will help get you started.

“The retreat requirements of Discovering Buddhism are the specific practices advised by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, our Spiritual Director… They are the foundational practices that open the mind to realizations on the path and clear away lifetimes of negative karmic buildup, preparing us for not only a happy death and future rebirth, but also for the ultimate happiness of liberation and enlightenment.”


• Ngön-dro (preliminary practices)
• Prostrations (bowing)
• The 35 Buddhas & the Bodhisattva Confession
• Vajrasattva mantra purification
• How to do a Lam-rim retreat
• Nyung-nay retreat
• Chenrezig/Avalokiteshvara – Buddha of Compassion
• How to take and keep the Eight Mahayana Precepts

Attendance at previous Discovering Buddhism modules is NOT essential, but a general background in Buddhism is recommended.


This course will be taught by Venerable Steve Carlier, assisted by Venerable Drimay. See more about our teachers here.
