Body, language, and mind are our vehicles, our basic tool. Only through this trio, this trilogy of expressive stories, can we transmit and transform what we have, what we are, and what we can know.

                                                                                Light of Lotus Master 

This immersive and intensive weekend introduces Tarthang Tulku’s advanced teaching, the Lotus Trilogy: a path of inquiry that is a shining, working model for understanding mind and heart. Tarthang Tulku’s vision of being and knowing integrates body, language and mind. Based on the Tibetan wisdom tradition—yet presented in a secular way that is open to all—the Lotus teachings guide us to the full flowering of our human potential. As we connect head and heart, learn to communicate skillfully, and touch the silence at the center of our mind, our positive way of being shines effortlessly into the world.

This program serves as a gateway for advanced courses in Lotus Trilogy based on Lotus Body, Lotus Language, or Lotus Mind. It can be taken in person or online. Prerequisite: What Comes After Mindfulness or other Dharma college courses, or consent of the instructor.

We will be using the Skillful Means 28-day challenge along with inspirations from Gesture of Balance. This class is for anyone wanting to set priorities for the week with a focus on concentration and setting goals for the month. It is all done with an aspiration to build our work/life balance.

We will be working together by sharing our goals and paying attention to inner balance. It will end with a class project which will identify a unique task project that you’ve been wishing to achieve but for some reason, it has never materialized. Now, is that chance to bring that project alive! This class is for anyone interested in setting a personal goal and seeing your efforts realized!

You will need a copy of the Skillful Means Workshop book along with Special Notebook.

The Extraordinary Potential of Being
Join us as we integrate body, language, and mind and deepen our understanding of what it means to be fully human. The transformation that we are aiming at operates at the level of the body, mind, and language. The retreat will consist of teachings, readings, practice, small group discussions, and periods for individual contemplation.

Before I depended. Now, I am free. (Venerable Tarthang Tulku, Lotus Orientation Manual)
