We are very happy to welcome Don Handrick back to teach at Lama Yeshe Ling this August. Don combines years of study and a profound understanding of the Buddha’s teachings with a very kind and gentle approach. He will guide us in an exploration of the text, “Seven-Point Thought Transformation”, written by Geshe Chekhawa in the 12th century, which explains Buddha’s instructions for training the mind (lojong). We will learn how these traditional teachings are relevant and valuable tools for successfully navigating our modern lives.
Register to participate Tuesdays online with Zoom.
Watch on Facebook.
