Come discover Tibetan Buddhist meditation instruction that enables us to develop our innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Become skilled at applying these techniques to generate the mind of bodhichitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, at the heart of Buddha’s teachings.

Topics include: equanimity, exchanging self and other, what is the bodhisattva vow, and may include introducing practices for developing compassion through the Chenresig mantra, saving animals, and more.

Discovering Buddhism is open to all, regardless of prior background or experience with Buddhist study or practice, and is completely free to you. Participants are welcome to practice generosity in the form of donating volunteer time to support this program according to their capacity.  At the end of the program, we offer you an opportunity to reflect on any benefit you received, and then Pay It Forward, making a financial contribution that enables us to offer this program freely in the future for others. Maitripa College wants to break down financial, educational, racial, gender, or other barriers to dharma; please let us know how we can make your participation a joyful, welcoming experience.
