2018 Spring Class Series
Tuesday Class: Taught by Lama Pema
Tibetan Buddhist Psychology and the Five Buddha Families
Tuesdays, April 17 – May 22, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
This course examines principles of Tibetan Buddhist psychological theory and the application of those principles in creating individual emotional clarity. We explore the Buddhist view of desire, confusion and aggression, and develop an understanding of ego’s neurotic and wisdom aspects. This is an excellent class for those who have dual interests in psychology and Buddhism. While Western psychological approaches emphasize formation of a healthy functioning ego, Buddhist psychology provides methods to eliminate the neurosis caused by our deluded sense of self, and wake up to our inherent Buddha Nature.
The five Buddha-families are five principles of Buddha nature; they refer to the Buddha qualities in all of us and are the basis of tantric visualization practices. We will explore their attributes and relationship to our own process of transforming confusion into wisdom.
Tuition: $145 ($125 for those paying $30/month or more in membership) Scholarships available. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration is required to attend the class.
