This one year course works through Tarthang Rinpoche’s Revelations of Mind, using Richard Dixey’s commentary, Searcher Reaches Lands Limits. There are five six week terms, totalling 30 classes overall, with a revision class at the end of each term, and a weekly movement class. 

Mind itself has rarely been the subject of serious observation and sustained inquiry. This can reveal a way of understanding that dissolves our problems and blossoms into creative freedom. As it is, beset by misunderstanding, our world staggers from one crisis to the next. Imprisoned by our own concepts, blind to the effects they have on our behaviors, it’s hard to find a way forward. The path of understanding addresses these problems directly. We’ll begin with how mind can examine mind, then explore inner narratives. We explore how cognition is structured, leading to a new appreciation of how we construct our experience. Closely coupling classes with meditation exercises, we deepen our understanding of the ongoing relationship between what we see and what we think, revealing a freedom within mind that is totally unexpected. This new freedom is deepened until it can be accessed at any point- a true Revelation of Mind.



Classes meet online for six weeks, for one and a half hours a week. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and discussion. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings and the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online community portal gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students. A review class is offered at the end of each term, and an embodied movement practice class is offered weekly.
