Balance your body, speech/spirit, and mind holistically with loving kindness and compassion with Reiki.

Long-time dharma student and member, Pat Venter, will begin a new cycle of Reiki courses on Saturday, April 22

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) an ancient hands-on healing art that originated from the east, is a universal life force that transcends time and space. This class is filled with teaching, sharing, reflections, and learning about how to effectively use simple methods to assist in healing self, others, animals, and the planet. We will explore our interconnectedness with the Reiki energy (chi) and tap into that source with attunement, symbols, and meditation.

It is important to note that Reiki is not a religion. Reiki's function is to help balance the energy levels of one's being holistically with the goal of enhancing wellness. The approach is to connect with the component of the human spirit that wants happiness and to let go of things that cause pain and suffering. Reiki is considered a complementary healing system.

Requirement: Must attend both days. (Participants will receive a certificate)

Demonstrations and practices will apply. It is helpful, but not required, to bring a stuffed animal to class. A light lunch will be provided on Saturday and snacks on Sunday

For more information and to register please call Pat Venter at (617) 298 8576 or email us at reiki@kurukulla.org by Friday, April 14.

Requested donation is $70. The proceeds will benefit the Center

Wednesday Evening Classes with Geshe Tenley: Mind and Mental Factors
Posted Mar 09 2017 03:00:00pm

Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

The study of Mind and Cognition (Lorig) is subdivided into two main parts: Minds and Mental Factors, and Awarenesses and Knowers.

In contrast to Awarenesses and Knowers, which investigates how the mind knows, this subject focuses on the states that color and control the mind, known as the 51 mental factors. Based on one of the earliest systematizations of the Buddha's teachings, this practical guide offers us a key to identifying and cultivating positive attitudes that lead to peace and well-being.

This class is suitable for all levels of students and for anyone interested in learning more about the mind, whether you consider yourself a Buddhist or not.

You can download a copy of the root text or e-mail spc@kurukulla.org if you would like a hard copy.
