Course Description

Training the mind is a gradual process.  Before we begin training we need to first examine and get to know how our minds jump about. And, in this process, we may discover some surprising things.  We may never have thought much about our mental processes.  In a few short segments, Phakchok Rinpoche provides us with tools that we can use to begin investigating our mind.  In this program, you will receive easy-to-follow instructions on interrupting our habitual patterns.  And importantly, through this interruption, we can learn how to be less reactive. We can take charge of our own minds!

Rejoicing for our Global Translation Team

This course is donation based, and has been available in English for some time now. Thanks to the work of many volunteers, we now have it available in five other languages. This course is suitable for all types of practitioners. If you have always wanted to share teachings with friends or family members, this short course is a great place to begin. But it is also a great reminder for all of us already on the Buddhist path! Please share this information with any non-English speaker you think might benefit from these wonderful teachings.
