‘Seven-Point Mind Training’ in October

BIBS presents Buddhist View 275, a look at the classic Tibetan Buddhist teaching by Atisha known as the Seven-Point Mind Training.

Seven-Point Mind Training in the Dzogchen Tradition
Sundays, beginning Oct. 1, 2017
2 – 3 p.m. at BIBS; 660 N. 9th St.
Please RSVP to dalerb@cableone(dot)net

The class will explore the highly pragmatic Mind Training tradition or lojong, a 1,000-year-old series of short points of view or instructions, designed to dismantle our flawed behavioral tendencies, and engender the awakening of compassion. We will attempt to cover one point each week, with an introduction on week one. The text for this class will be following Alan Wallace’s  published commentary Buddhism with an Attitude. Students are encouraged to get the text.

This topic is appropriate for anyone wishing to put Buddhist principles into action, whether a complete beginner or experienced practitioner.

Presenter Dale Bowden is a longtime student of B. Alan Wallace and recently completed a two-month retreat with him in Italy. He received these teachings from B. Alan Wallace and Michael Conklin.

    Hi there,

    Is it appropriate for me to attend a future Sunday training even though I could not attend the first session on October 1? I am thinking of coming this Sunday if that is ok.

    Thank you! Sam
