5 Elements Online Course

March 12 – April 22, 2016 This spring we are offering the 6 week Five Elements course online on the Ligmincha Learning site.

Transforming Your Emotions Through the Six Lokas

Transforming Your Emotions Through the Six Lokas

January 16 – March 5, 2016 This online course reveals a very effective means of self discovery and transformation, based upon the ancient system of the Six Lokas, or realms of existence. On one level these realms of existence can be understood as realities separate from our own, and are traditionally described as the realms of the gods, demigods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts, and hell beings. In the mythology of these realms, each suffers from its own distinct malady, for example the gods are spiritually lazy for they live such a comfortable life, while the animals suffer from their ignorance since they do not have higher cognitive abilities. The mythology, stories and teachings around these realms are rich in their meaning and symbolism, and are easy to relate...

New Course on Three Heart Mantras

New Course on Three Heart Mantras

Yes, that’s right! We have created a new online course with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche on the Three Heart Mantras of Bön. We are editing the videos and producing the course materials now, and the new course will be offered June 4 – July 4, 2014. The Three Heart Mantras are used in many different meditations in the Bön tradition, and play a major role in the ngrondro practices. They are said to be the essence of enlightenment in sound and energy, and as we sing or chant the mantras our awareness is transformed to be in union with the Buddhas. They are used for purification, protection, and as primary practices toward self realization. It is said that creating these mantras in any form brings merit and purification, so they are commonly found carved into stones,...

Study Validates Effectiveness of Online Mindfulness Program

Study Validates Effectiveness of Online Mindfulness Program

A group of researchers from the Cleveland Clinic, a well respected medical school and research center, published a study in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine that clearly validates the use of online courses to teach mindfulness based meditation. The team enrolled about 700 people in a randomized, parallel, controlled trial, with a control group that received no intervention. The subjects were recruited from clinics, referrals, web sites, and flyers, and were self selected. Generally the subjects were well educated and computer literate prior to the study, but had very little or no experience in meditation. The primary objective was to evaluate whether the online mindfulness program effectively decreased stress and improved mindfulness, self-acceptance,...
