This course explores the book Contemplating Reality by Andy Karr, which is based on the classic text by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamptso, Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness. Karr’s book makes the classic text more accessible and provides many helpful contemplation practices. Using Karr’s approach, we will develop our understanding and experience of egolessness, emptiness, and luminosity, as taught by historically evolving Buddhist schools. This evolving history is important because it roughly corresponds to the stages of development of our own personal wisdom.

"The Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness will offer you the opportunity to contemplate more deeply the understanding and experience that you have already had. And you will have the opportunity to see for yourself how the brilliant Shambhala teachings are in complete harmony with the profound Buddhadharma as it has been historically taught in the three turnings of the wheel of dharma.  You will see how the historical development of the understanding of emptiness parallels our own personal development of insight into emptiness.You will see how the historical development of the understanding of emptiness parallels our own personal development of insight into emptiness." - Billy Boyar.

This class is recommended for anyone who has already completed any two courses in the Shambhala curriculum and who has an established meditation practice. Purchasing your own copy of Contemplating Reality by Andy Karr is highly encouraged. Contact Rose Ann Mancias if you have questions.  [email protected]
