We are now moving to the second course in the series Foundations for Freedom-The Hinayana, an in-depth exploration of the fundamental teaching of the Five Skandhas.  Although this is the second course in this Year of Hinayana series, there is no pre-requisite to register and attend, all are welcome.

Having recognized the truth of suffering and confusion that is pervasive in our life, we naturally have questions. How does this state of suffering arise? Where does confusion come from? Our innate intelligence begins to explore the subtle layers of experience, going deeper and deeper until we come to the heart of our being.

In this course, we will touch these layers or constellations of experience one by one, starting from the unconditioned, innate ground of open space, and see how we fabricate our own world of projections.

About the teachers for Course 2: 

Acharya Dale Asrael became a student of Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche in 1973. Since that time, the inspiration of the Bodhisattva Vow has been the foundation of her practice and study, and a main theme in the programs and retreats she teaches internationally. She is an Associate Professor at Naropa University, where she has taught a course on compassion for counselors for the past twenty years. She is the author of “No Hidden Corners: Compassion Training in Counselor Education,” in the recently published anthology Shadows and Light. She is the founder and main instructor of Naropa University Mindfulness Instructor Training, a year-long program for people teaching mindfulness in transitional environments.
