Please join us for a program with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master in the Kagyü tradition. In his book, Riding Stormy Waves, Rinpoche writes, “Obstacles are the true path. If there are no obstacles, there is no path.” This is the notion of bringing everything we encounter to the path of awakenment. The situations we find most frustrating or disappointing can show us where we’re holding back, where we’re trying—and failing—to find security for ourselves.  The challenging situations of our lives can be the basis of letting go of our Me Project and discovering not only our unlimited brilliance and compassion, but a vivid connection to the whole world. 
Rinpoche will give a Friday night talk, a Saturday morning talk, and a Saturday afternoon talk each followed by a brief question and answer period. There will be a blessing line Saturday evening after the talk for program participants.
The Friday night talk is open to everyone for a cost of $35. If you decide you would like to come back on Saturday, the cost will be $95 for the day. All prices listed on the registration page are for preregistration and prepayment only.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche was born in Kham Lingtsang, in eastern Tibet, and was recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa as the incarnation of one of the tulkus of Ringu monastery, a Kagyüpa monastery in his home province. He studied with some of the most distinguished khenpos of the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions and received teachings from many outstanding masters, including Thrangu Rinpoche, Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and the Gyalwang Karmapa. He is the author of Path to Buddhahood and The Ri-me Philosophy of Jamgön Kongtrul the Great.
