MDT308 Techniques of Meditation: Mahamudra
with Yangsi Rinpoche and (5 weeks) with Roger Jackson
Wednesdays 6-8 pm  

This course will continue with instruction in meditation based on the practices established in MDT 303 (fall semester), with a focus on deepening Shiné (calm abiding) and practicing Mahāmudrā instructions for realizing the conventional and ultimate natures of the mind.

The subject matter will parallel the topics of Buddhist philosophy featured in PHL308. The course will be taught in an interactive format, allowing students the opportunity to learn specific meditations as directed by the instructor, practice them, and discuss their experiences in class.

Part of this class will include regular meditation sessions out of class, the keeping of a sitting journal, and the opportunity for discussion of the effect of these practices on the individual’s mind. If desired, the committed student will have the opportunity to work with the instructor to design a personal meditation practice.

This course meets degree requirements as the equivalent of MDT304: Techniques of Meditation A Dose of Emptiness.
