Offered online (for local members only) and in-person (for everyone)

The Bliss of Tantric Meditation

Buddha’s Tantric teachings, known as Vajrayana Mahamudra, express his
highest and ultimate understanding. According to this view, which is
Buddha’s direct experience, everything is the union of bliss and
emptiness. What does that mean? It means that the heart of reality is
joyful and limitless. This is obviously far removed from our current
ordinary experience of our life, which is characterized by problems
and disappointments.

Through talks and guided meditations, this course will demonstrate
the practical applicability of Buddha’s sublime tantric teachings and
practices to our daily life. We will come to understand that
experiencing our world in this profoundly joyful and liberating way is
the key to a truly happy and meaningful life. Joseph will show how to
practice these teachings according to our own level of experience, so
that those of us already engaged in tantric meditation, as well as
those who are just beginning the journey, and everyone in between,
will be helped and inspired.
