In this class, we will consider the great historical teachers of Tibetan Buddhism.  We'll explore how their stories illustrate how meditation can help us cultivate  insight and compassion, as well as the discipline, patience and exertion to overcome inner and outer obstacles.  Through discussion and practice, we will reflect on how their lives may inform and inspire our own meditation practice and approach to life. 

Each class will have a short talk, discussion and guided meditation.

The course starts on March 10 and runs five Tuesday nights until April 7.  

Shastri Mark Blumenfeld became a student of Shambhala in 1979 when he began studying with Chögyam Trungpa, Shambhala International’s founder. In the 1990, he moved to Madison, Wisconsin and worked with the community there to found the Shambhala Center of Madison.  He is a former center director and has taught programs in meditation, mindfulness, Buddhism and Shambhala for over twenty-five years. 


This course is open to everyone.
