Meditation: The Way of the Buddha

Filed under Shambhala News Service, Uncategorized

Shambhala Online presents a six-week online course based on archival videos by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Although decades old, these archival talks from the summer of 1974 retain their original potency and are a reminder of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s incomparable skill at communicating Buddhist teachings to a Western audience. These short talks – from mindfulness practice, to awareness practice, to the realization of emptiness – will be supported by further commentary and facilitated discussion by some of today’s leading teachers of Buddhism in the West, many of whom were actually present during these talks in 1974, including:

This course also includes the possibility of connecting in-person (or online) with a local study group in cities and regions where there are multiple registrants.

Course Outline

January 9 Live Session – Shamatha or Abiding In Peace

January 16 Live Session – State of Mind

With June Crow and Dorje Loppön Lodrö Dorje
Chögyam Trunpa Rinpoche discusses sems, lodro, and rigpa – aspects of intelligence, or the mechanics of mind, as well as the development of ego through the five skandhas.

January 23 Live Session -Mid-Course Interview and Q&A

January 30 Live Session – Vipashyana or Insight Meditation

With Gaylon Ferguson and Judith Simmer-Brown
How the practice of shamatha meditation naturally leads to the experience of vipashyana, or insight meditation. A discussion of mindfulness and awareness and how vipashyana experience leads to the experiential discovery of egolessness.

February 6 Live Session – The Dawn of Enlightenment

With Arawana Hayashi and Marty Janowitz
All of the talks are experiential. In the last talk, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche gives the audience a taste of the desolation and power of shunyata, or emptiness, and how this experience leads to the dawning of Buddha nature and the first glimpse of enlightenment. This session also will include a celebration of the collective accomplishment of practice and study!
