    “Meditation can enable us to tap the healing qualities of mind, eventually transforming our impoverishing patterns of thought and action into liberating growth.” Tarthang Tulku, Hidden Mind of Freedom.

    Mind is perhaps the most powerful force in our lives. It rules our thoughts, feelings, and attitudes and governs our actions. Mind can reflect immense beauty, love, and clarity, but mind can also weave an intricate web of suffering. This five-month course draws on the innate power of mind to heal itself, to penetrate self-delusion, and to see through the causes of unnecessary pain.

    Nyingma Psychology teachings harness this clarity of mind and its ability to know itself. Through this deep knowing, mind can break free from the weight of conflicting thoughts and emotions. We discover that the key to healing is already in our hands. Each month of the course unlocks specific aspects of the physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions of our being.

    Month One: Emotions as Hidden Knowledge: Questioning mind through powerful introspective techniques reveals new dimensions of knowledge and wonder. Includes the Transforming Negative Emotions workshop on January 30.

    Month Two: Desire and the Fundamental Operation of Mind: Breaking free from images of desire, our hearts can open to deeper values and truer sources of nourishment.

    Month Three: Transforming Emotional Tension and Conditioning: Ways to release tension are combined with inquiry into the sources of negative emotions and restrictive conditioning.

    Month Four: Unmasking Self-Images: Observing how inner narratives arise and disappear, we begin to disentangle ourselves from judgment and manipulation. Includes the Self-Image workshop on April 23.

    Month Five: Reclaiming the Heart: Recognizing and releasing those mental patterns that restrict our freedom, we increase the resolve to honor and protect the heart of our being. Meditative practices are integrated with joy and compassion. We seal the intention to transform our lives.

    Cost: $400 (for the entire five months) or $80 per month, which includes the workshops “Transforming Negative Emotions” on January 30 and “Self-Image” on April 23. Instructor: Sylvia Gretchen. Students may attend this class on a month-to-month basis, although the greatest benefit will come from attending the entire five-month sequence. Note: no class held on January 25.

With an emphasis on joyful engagement in life, 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. These are just a few videos samples of the offerings at the Nyingma Institute ins Berkeley California.
