Wisdom to Enrich the Quality of Your Life
10/3/2016 5:00:00 PM UTC - 12/10/2016 2:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Nyingma Institute
The Nyingma Institute in Berkeley, California has been bringing the riches of the Tibetan tradition to the Western world since 1972. We offer training in meditation, Buddhist studies, and Tibetan language in ways that blend cognitive and experiential learning. Tibetan Yoga, Nyingma Psychology, and the Time, Space, and Knowledge vision were all developed here by our founder Tarthang Tulku. These unique fields of study provide effective ways to counteract tension, clear the mind, and open body and mind to new dimensions of feeling.

Fall courses apply the insightful teachings of the Tibetan tradition to our lives today, bringing the benefits of increased serenity and health and giving us a taste of this unique path to human development. Note that classes will not be held on Thanksgiving.
