NPS103 Working With Emotions

This course will offer meditations for working with emotions that arise in daily life. Although emotions can be unpredictable and throw us off balance, they can also be great teachers. Learning to apply mindful awareness and compassion as emotions arise, we can free ourselves from their limitations, and from clinging to both pleasant and unpleasant experiences. We can transform the pure energy within an emotion to respond positively to any challenge. 

“Our emotions show us where to direct our attention; rather than obscuring the path, they can clarify and sharpen it.” Tarthang Tulku, Openness Mind.

NPS116 Skillful Means . . . Caring

This course presents practical, direct, transformative practices and teachings from Tarthang Rinpoche's recent book Caring. We will explore how we can experience greater depth of love and caring for ourselves and others, shift from reactivity to responsiveness, and awaken to being fully present for our lives in all situations -- with our loved ones, at work, and in difficult circumstances.

Through inquiry, contemplations, and meditative practices, we will engage the mysterious experience of knowing, which is deeply connected with caring. Caring invites us to cultivate a fresh attunement and deeper connection with self and others, and points us towards inhabiting pure being. From the tender heart of caring, we can act skillfully and dynamically in the world, and fully open to the field of potential that is our life.

NPS117 Aging Wisely

This course explores the opportunities and challenges for mining wisdom as we move into the senior years through practices and discussions. We will draw on teachings and meditations from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition that serve to wake up to precious life right now. How can we age more consciously? Rather than diminishing our experience, slowing down can enrich each moment. For seniors as well as elders’ caregivers, and anyone curious about the mysteries of life as we face loss, sickness and death.
