Using Work as a Spiritual Path

May 18

by Don Handrick

We are pleased to welcome Don Handrick to Land of Medicine Buddha for the first time.

A FPMT Masters Program of Buddhist Studies graduate, Don Handrick is the resident teacher at our sister center, Thubten Norbu Ling in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Besides teaching at other FPMT centers in the US, Don had also taught at the month-long Kopan November course, attended by over 200 students from all over the world. Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche praised Don on several occasions for his humility and kindness.

Don has received teachings from many esteemed and precious lamas in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Ribur Rinpoche, Choden Rinpoche, and Khensur Jampa Tegchog. He is well-known for his humility, kindness and clarity of instruction.

Don will give two public talks on the May 11 and May 18 and lead two weekend courses on Transform your mind; Transform the world.

Using Work as a Spiritual Path

Most of us spend a good portion of our lives working at our jobs, engaging in the “busy-ness” that is fundamental for our livelihood but which often seems quite removed from the serenity we are seeking on the spiritual path. In this session, we will discuss how we can utilize Buddhist principles in our approach to work in order to develop more clarity, inspiration, and fulfillment in our jobs and overcome the drudgery, stress, and frustration which frequently occur.
