How to See Yourself As You Really Are 

In this course, inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama's book of the name and led by Venerable Tendron, we will explore teachings on emptiness and how to recognize and dispel misguided notions of self and embrace the world more realistically and lovingly. Like the two wings of a bird, compassion and emptiness/wisdom are essential qualities on the path to enlightenment.

"Sometimes you might think, 'What's the use of teachings on emptiness? How does this philosophy help me when I have problems in everyday life?' However, if you can think [about emptiness], it's the most powerful meditation to shatter the hallucinations. It's like an atomic bomb. Problems happen in your daily life because you believe the hallucinations to be real. The most powerful, immediate way to stop problems is to remember emptiness. You should especially remember emptiness when you are in situations where there's a danger of giving rise to strong anger or uncontrolled desire and creating heavy negative karma and causing great harm to others."

- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The course will take place on the following Sundays: June 4th, June 11th, June 25th, July 2nd, July 9th, July 16th, July 23rd and July 30th.
