Wisdom II: The Power of Investigation

$60 class fee

The path of wisdom that leads to clear seeing and liberation requires the careful examination of one's experience. In this class we will use the teachings of two remarkable Tibetan masters who give very clear instructions on how to practice the investigation of phenomena. 

Readings will be sent out before each class.  Students are encouraged to register early for this class so they can receive the meditation instructions before the class begins.

This class is most appropriate for students who have an established meditation practice and some familiarity with the Four Noble Truths. 
Classes meet weekly on Zoom.  When you submit your registration form, you will see the message: You have successfully registered, appear briefly above the submit button.  A few days prior to the first class meeting, you will receive the Zoom link  and a short reading.  If possible, please register at least one day prior to the first class so that you will have time to complete the short reading. 

There is a suggested donation of $60, which covers the all classes.  Any amount is gratefully accepted. Your practice of  generosity makes it possible for those of limited means to participate in the class.

Class scholarships are available through the generosity of The Mirani Foundation. Please let us know if you need a partial or full scholarship.
