Event Details

Tonpa Shenrap Miwoche

Ligmincha Learning is pleased to offer an online course on “Treasures of Bön: History, Lineage & Practices,” starting August 23, for anyone who would like to learn more about or deepen their existing knowledge of this ancient, profound tradition. The five-week online course runs through September 29, 2019.

Bön counts itself among the oldest spiritual traditions in the world. With origins steeped in an oral, shamanic tradition and yet deeply rooted in teachings of the buddha Tonpa Shenrap who preceded Shakyamuni Buddha, Bön offers practices for the challenges we face in our lives, and a complete path to enlightenment.

This course is ideal for beginners who have recently connected with Bön teachings and want to know more about where it comes from and the many varied forms of practice in the tradition. It is also well suited for practitioners who would like to know how all the practices fit together into a beautiful and complete system of philosophies and meditations.

In a new format, Geshe Denma Gyaltsen, resident lama of Ligmincha Texas, and John Jackson, mentor for many Ligmincha Learning courses and frequent international teacher, enter into deep conversations around the essential masters and teachings of the Bön tradition. Each topical conversation is followed by a guided meditation, led by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche or Geshe Denma, which illustrates the themes discussed.
