NPS401 Transforming Negative Emotions

When we quiet mind, calm the body, and relax the breath, we are more able to see clearly the components of an emotional experience; how emotional turmoil elicits reactivity and constricts awareness. It is possible to pacify emotions rather than suppressing them. We can transform emotions into pure, positive energy by shifting habitual patterns of response, enabling availability of greater awareness and calm in all situations. 

Instructor Olivia Hurd. Some meditation experience required.

NPS406 Activating Joyous Feeling

“By stimulating and directing positive, joyous feelings we can change the essence of our inner patterns and experience. When positive or joyous feelings and attitudes pass through each organ and circulate throughout our whole system, our physical and chemical energies are transformed. In other words, we have the opportunity to recreate our bodies through positive energy.” Tarthang Tulku, Gesture of Balance.

Meditation, awareness, and movement practices awaken and expand joyous feelings. You will learn exercises that distribute deep feelings of joy through both body and mind.Based on Tarthang Tulku’s Gesture of Balance and Kum Nye Relaxation. Suitable for all levels of students.

NPS407 Transforming Personal History

“In every time and place throughout history, people have been lifted out of their daily routines by moments of beauty when they sensed the wonder of being alive in this world.” Tarthang Tulku, Knowledge of Freedom.

Habits and patterns intertwined with painful past memories often prevent us from enjoying the freedom and beauty that the human body and mind offer. It is possible to skillfully touch these memories in a way that cuts through their power to restrict us. Practices from Knowledge of Freedom can help transform personal history from a source of pain into a wellspring of renewal.

NPS416 Delving Deep into Caring


In this workshop we go beyond our usual understanding and displays of caring to explore caring as a vital force that can transform life from the inside out. We will employ practices and thought-provoking perspectives from Tarthang Tulku's recently published Caring book to examine how caring can bring us face-to-face with human nature’s deepest mysteries and highest potentials.Caring can become our foundation for the practice of skillful means.

We live in a remarkable time in history when we have developed massive technical power but are losing our humanity to deep routines that control us and dictate where to focus our energy. Until we learn how to cultivate an appreciation for ourselves, we will be ineffective in caring for others.

Through caring we can experience a greater depth of love for ourselves and others, shift from reactivity to responsiveness, and awaken to being fully present in all situations. We will the integrate teachings and practices from Caring with other readings from Rinpoche’s earlier writings, such as Skillful Means and Kum Nye. From a tender heart of caring, we can act skillfully and dynamically in the world, opening fully to our potential as human beings.
