Tricycle and San Francisco Zen Center present:

Training in Compassion

An eight-week online course based on the Training in Compassion lojong teachings.

Life is hard: love and compassion are necessities for basic sustainability. In this course, Zoketsu Norman Fischer, a poet and Zen Buddhist priest, will offer practical exercises for reducing self-centeredness (which comes so naturally to us, yet causes so much pain) and for developing compassion.

This eight-week video course is a compelling investigation of Tibetan lojong practice. It includes guided meditations, discussion, and live call-in sessions.

Each week, in video form, Norman will investigate one of the main points of lojong mind training, and lead a guided meditation built around a specific group of slogans. The course also includes four live call-in sessions, which will address student questions and clarify points that may be presenting difficulty.

This course begins on March 7.
