This three year program is now available to all our sustaining members through their membership login. The program was designed in response to the sincere interest of so many in our sangha who have expressed their wish to gradually explore the Buddhist path as a way to live in alignment with their deepest values and potential. It follows aspects of the path training Dharma Refuge's teacher, Sue Kochan received from her teacher Anam Thubten Rinpoche.
In Tibetan Buddhism, practitioners utilize an intelligent and skillful system to awaken—a system that is designed to gracefully carry us from confusion to enlightenment. Our Lineage Training is an overview of this system and offers extensive training on two important texts:
I want to say "Calling all Bodhisattvas" because I can't think of a more important call to embrace right now. Perhaps the very best medicine for this time in the world is to have more bodhisattvas-in-training.
The bodhisattva journey is a far-reaching one because we train the mind and heart in openness toward all beings without exception, and without conditions (starting with ourselves). It's a path of practice and study which, when undertaken with sincerity, has the power to recondition our way of being—interrupting our cycles of stress, overwhelm, and reactivity — and revealing our innate responsiveness, resilience, and grace.
Bodhisattvas-in-training make a commitment to a courageous life. It is a life fiercely dedicated to the “inside-out training” in love—love that frees us from the constrained ideas of right and wrong, good and bad, broken or healed, self and other.
Please consider joining us on this journey of healing and transformation, for the benefit of all.
