'May great ideas come to me from all directions.'   - Eastern Prayer

Many aspects of our consciousness need both new ideas to awaken and then time and practice to properly unfold. This training is based on teachings and exercises drawn from the great wisdom traditions and adapted to contemporary western needs. The training uses a combination of modalities, including lecture, discussion, Q&A, contemplation, and meditation, as well as a broad sweep of philosophy, literature, history, science, poetry and art to enhance and deepen the experience of each aspect of consciousness being explored.


This year's training will focus on the 112 meditations from the Book of Divine Wisdom (Vijnana Bhairava).  Lee has recently completed a new translation of this sublime meditation text from the 8th century Kashmiri spiritual tradition.  Considered one of the shining jewels of the Tantric tradition, its outlook is profoundly compassionate and life affirming, reflecting a strikingly modern world view towards spirituality.  Rather than withdrawing from life, the meditations teach us how to engage the extraordinary and sublime aspects of both our inner and outer world. The meditations develop sequentially throughout the text, awaking many different dimensions of our consciousness and relationship with life, culminating in an ecstatic series of meditations on the state of oneness. 

The course will consist of 14 mini workshops, beginning September 9th, and meeting every second Sunday morning from 10am to 12:00pm.  Each student will be given a copy of the translation and commentary to work from. 

DATES:  September 9, 23, October 7, 21, November 4, 18, December 2.  (break for the holidays)    January 13, 27, February 10, 24, March 10, 24, April 7, 28.

FEE: $1,350
