Buddha presents us with an extraordinary vision of our human potential: becoming an enlightened person whose very being benefits everyone. Is that possible? Yes, through the practices that emphasize emptiness on the one hand and love and compassion on the other. The union of wisdom and method.

In this weekend meditation course, set in the beautiful and inspiring environment of the Catskills and our national temple, we will delve deeply into the practice known as ‘exchanging self with others’ highlighting how an understanding of emptiness naturally produces a profound empathy. It is from this wisdom-based love that the two bodhichittas, the actual causes of enlightenment, arise.

This course will give us insight our human capacity, energizing and inspiring every facet of our spiritual practice both sutra and tantra. Everyone is welcome.
