Join Judy Lief, Buddhist teacher and editor of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, for an online course that explores the first volume of this monumental work: The Path of Individual Liberation. Through video recorded during a nine-day retreat she led on the subject, Lief will guide us through the traditional hinayana teachings as taught by Chögyam Trungpa. The hinayana path is based on training in mindfulness and awareness, in cultivating virtue, and in cutting off grasping. Topics covered in detail in this online course include the four noble truths, the four foundations of mindfulness, shamatha and vipashyana meditation practice, the three jewels, and more.
