    "Walking the spiritual path properly is a very subtle process. There are numerous sidetracks, which lead to a distorted, ego-centered version of spirituality. We can deceive ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques. This fundamental distortion may be referred to as spiritual materialism."

    –from Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

    Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s classic book Cutting through Spiritual Materialism is said to be a commentary on the Sadhana of Mahamudra. Please join Barbara Smith in this three-session course to study both the sadhana and the text, which are so relevant to the times in which we live. These teachings transcend past, present, and future, in the “mandala which is never arranged but is always complete.”

    If there is sufficient interest, we will create an ongoing Sadhana of Mahamudra study circle following the course. All are welcome. Donations are greatly appreciated. Registration is optional but helps us plan the course.
