The Way of Tara Rokpa

This course has been cancelled

7:00pm - 4:00pm

Cost: £63.00

Venue: Samye Ling


Akong Rinpoche spent many years developing a method of mind training using Buddhist principles, which he wanted to be accessible to people who aren’t attracted to formal Dharma practices, but who never the less recognise that their way of engaging with society, as well as their interactions with others and the environment could be developed more beneficially. 

When followed with care, Akong Rinpoche felt the way of Tara Rokpa could help individuals develop maturity of mind and engage in their world more compassionately.

Over the weekend we will take an overview of the Tara Rokpa programme, and explore some of the methods taught by Rinpoche that form the heart of the Tara Rokpa Process.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing, and bring a yoga or camping mat if you have one.
