We are very pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with Dharma College to offer a deep exploration of mind’s true nature. Based on Tarthang Tulku’s groundbreaking text, Revelations of Mind, Dr. Richard Dixey will guide us on a journey into discovering the inner workings and potential of our own mind.
The book Revelations of Mind is a contemporary yet profound teaching for liberating the modern mind. This six-week course will work from Searcher Reaches Lands Limits, an in-depth commentary written by Dr. Dixey.
How is our ordinary consciousness constructed? Why is internal chatter and stress such a central part of our experience? How can we access non conceptual engagement when all we have is a web of words? In this course we will explore the structure of perception, the role language plays in self and other identity, and the roots of human suffering.
Each Module is comprised of six one and a half-hour classes, which includes exercises and discussion. A further four sections will be offered during the course of the year.
This course includes:
Week 1: The Central Importance of Mind
Week 2: Understanding the Regime of Mind
Week 3: Language and the Framing of Reality
Week 4: Seeing the Reactivity of Mind
Week 5: Seeing Through the Loops of Mind
Week 6: Questioning Identity
This course is open to all who are interested in the nature of mind and experience. It is especially suited for those who are studying the Khorde Rushen with Khandro Kunzag and will be sure to enrich your practice.
From Khandro Kunzang:
Revelations of Mind, and the commentary Searchers Reaches Lands Limit, present profound contemporary approaches to traditional Buddhist teachings on the discovering our true nature. I found this course to be a perfect support for traditional Dzogchen practices as it illuminates profound concepts that can get lost in translation and cultural differences. Richard’s teaching style is engaging, thought provoking and frankly, ingenious. I am very excited to be able to make this course available to our students and highly encourage those who are taking the Khorde Rushen to enroll in this course to supplement your training.
