“The teachings on mind training, or lojong, are an invaluable aid to practitioners because they show us how the wisdom and skillful means of the Mahayana can actually be put into action. They show us how to make it real.”

Judy Leif

This six week course will include recorded audio talks given by Acharya Judy Lief on the lojong slogans. We will also read commentary from Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness by Chögyam Trungpa and the collected writings of Chogyam Trungpa in The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion (volume 2): The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Two, edited by Judith Lief. This is an excellent opportunity to delve more deeply into the Mahayana teachings presented in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma book. Meditation practice, lively discussion and refreshments will be important parts of these weekly classes.

The class will be facilitated by several senior teachers in the St. Johnsbury Shambhala community. Beginners and experienced practitioners alike are invited to delve into this rich material and benefit from its wisdom.
