This class offers essential teaching on developing genuine compassion on the path of meditation.

In Tibetan, lo means "mind" or "intellect"; jong means "training" or "application." Therefore, lojong means "mind training," referring to the mahayana teaching of mind training.

Based on the Seven Points of Mind Training by the 10th century Indian teacher, Atisha Dipankara, these pithy slogans are tools for developing openness and skill in helping others. They are as helpful and relevant today as they were 1000 years ago.

The course will include meditation, contemplation, study and discussion.
