With the globalization of Vajray─üna Buddhism from Tibet over the past century, these contemplative traditions are being popularized, raising important questions about the study, reception, and performance of Buddhist yoga and meditation. Given the gravity of our time, and the increasing accessibility of Buddhist practices, these workshops are designed to be experimental slow-thinks about how to make sense of Tibetan contemplative practices in light of our contemplative human heritage.

Workshops are in-depth immersive explorations of Tibetan Buddhist practices of meditation for scholars, students, and practitioners. Full 3-day, 2-day, 1-day or condensed 1/2-day (4 hr.) in-person workshops or 1-day and 1/2-day online workshops are offered. Customized workshops can be designed in consultation.
