The Nine Stages of Meditation utilizes a visual approach to enable us to clearly understand the progressive stages of meditation practice. This teaching provides a basis for one new to meditation to begin practice and for those with an existing practice to progress. Additionally, these insights reveal how to overcome obstacles, develop and grow, and how to experientially gauge signs of progress in our meditation practice.
The Heart Sutra
As taught by Khentrul Lodro Thaye Rinpoche
The Heart Sutra is the quintessence of Shakyamuni Buddha's teachings on the way things are, clearly elucidating how the nature of all phenomena is emptiness. This is an extremely profound text because it contains all the key points of explanation found in the sutras regarding the true nature of phenomena. "Receiving this teaching is a truly rare and precious opportunity" as the Buddha himself stated. "The recipient of teachings on the Heart Sutra obtains the benefits and qualities of having received the teachings on emptiness" This is a spiritual journey of heart-mind that examines phenomenal perceptions of the outer world and inner aspects of our very being.

Transforming Adversity & Vipashyana Meditation with Khentrul Rinpoche
on Kaua'i July 7 - 8, 2018
Khentrul Rinpoche will reveal how we can enjoy much greater well-being in our lives by sharing some remarkable and little known tools for transforming adversity. The vast majority of us have never considered this method for transforming our experience. It is an unparalleled approach which directly pertains to the modern challenges we face.
This teaching is based upon a pith instruction written by the 3rd Dodrubchen Rinpoche, Jigme Tenpe Nyima (1865-1926), one of the most outstanding Tibetan saints of his time, and teacher to many great masters.
These gems of advice are priceless and inexhaustible treasures that will serve as a means for overcoming adversity and for creating more happiness in our lives and in the world. We invite everyone to attend. It is not necessary to have attended part I or II as Rinpoche will review the key points covered then.
\Vipashyana: The Search for Ultimate Truth and the Cultivation of Wisdom
Ultimate and lasting peace and happiness cannot be reached by relying on the outer world alone. It is found within ourselves when love and compassion is used as the basis for cultivating wisdom. Vipashyana, translated as profound insight meditation, is the exploration into the true nature of all things. This wisdom view is necessary for finding complete freedom from disturbing emotions and all suffering. Upon completion of the mind training text for Transforming Happiness and Suffering, Rinpoche will proceed to teach on vipashyana view and meditation.
