Free Online Serenity Ridge Dialogues October 22–24

Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and guests in a free, unique opportunity to explore the frontiers of science and spirituality. “Serenity Ridge Dialogues: Body, Breath & Mind” will be held online via Zoom October 22-24, 2021.

When we bring our attention to our body, our breath and our mind, what happens and why? How does our relationship to sensations, thoughts and perceptions change through meditation and other energetic practices? Can science and medicine inform how we engage with these ancient traditions? At the Serenity Ridge Dialogues online summit, you will explore these important questions and much more.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will be joined by Dr. B. Alan Wallace, author and expert on Tibetan Buddhism, and leading scientists, physicians and practitioners for this free, live online summit. The summit opens October 22 with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and B. Alan Wallace in a dialogue moderated by Daniel Aitken, CEO/Publisher of Wisdom Publications. They will share their views on the convergence of science and Buddhism and how it can inform spiritual practice.

Sessions on October 23 and 24 will bring leading-edge presenters into multidisciplinary conversations with peers. Guided practices of body, breath and mind will be held between each dialogue, and Tibetan yoga morning practice will be offered. The event also includes informal opportunities for discussion and conversation. This program is co-sponsored by Wisdom Publications and the UVA Contemplative Sciences Center.

Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

In the Tibetan tradition, body, speech and mind are known as the three doors to enlightenment, for they are the only tools we have for progressing on the spiritual path. Through these doors we either exit and become separated from our true nature, or we enter into the fullness of being, realizing and manifesting our capacities in this life for the benefit of others.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is launching a yearlong online program related to these three doors.

Year-End Letter from Ligmincha President Rob Patzig

We are living in a time of such great uncertainty, challenge and transformation. Isolation and loss in the face of Covid-19, separation across political and social justice issues, and the biodiversity crisis can seem overwhelming. How fortunate that the teachings of enlightened beings and realized masters of the Yungdrung Bön tradition are available to us!
