In many ways during the last year, we have all become more directly connected with the bardo experience. Although these teachings are connected with the birth and death aspects of our existence, the Vidyadhara, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche explains that bardo is also something that we are constantly experiencing. In this series of talks from 1971, Rinpoche explains the deeper meaning of these teachings and how they are pertinent to our life right now, not just at a time in the future. He discusses how we can put these teachings into practice and discover the truth of our existence.
There were nine talks in this first Intensive Training on the Bardo that Rinpoche taught in Colorado. We will split the course into two, with five talks in the Winter session and the remaining four in the Spring session. Each class will include listening to the talks by Trungpa Rinpoche and then discussing them as a group. These talks are rich in Rinpoche’s teachings and are both provocative and inspiring.
Please join us beginning January 26th at 7:00 pm ET. We will be offering a sitting session starting at 6:30 pm EST for those who wish to join us. We look forward to seeing you all there.
