The Beautiful Way of Life:

I’ll be teaching and leading meditations for the next twelve Tuesday evenings on the ancient text, “The Way of the Bodhisattva: (Bodhicaryavatara)", by Shantideva (Padmakara Translation).

The series is meant for serious meditation practitioners who already have a consistent daily practice. If you believe that you might be a good candidate please feel free to FB message me and share a little of your background. If you have been in previous courses, please continue as is. 🙏

Course requirements include an hour a day of meditation and reading assignments as well as a willingness to try visualization meditation practices.

The course is supplemented with weekly online quizzes and reflections for bringing the practice into daily life.

This course is offered in person at our Sarasota, Florida retreat center, by live interactive video with community members throughout the world, or by viewing the recordings of classes.

The course may also be Audited without personal teacher support. If you choose to register for teacher support, please take this commitment seriously: a volunteer experienced meditator will be reserving weekly time for you.

Please read the FAQ’s below carefully before writing to us with questions.
