MANDALA PRACTICE: HOLDING THE WORLD IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND AND LETTING GO—
INVIGORATING YOUR PRACTICE IN THE MAHAMUDRA PROGRAM - CLASS FOUR

This is the fourth in a series of four classes to be held over the course of 2016. We encourage anyone who has attended one of Bokar Rinpoche’s Mahamudra Program Seminars to attend this half-day of practice, teaching, and discussion (Seminar attendance is a prerequisite). If you are practicing Ngondro with another teacher and are interested in attending, please contact Erik Fromme with questions at frommee@ohsu.edu. 

The objective of this series is to create a community of support, learning, and inquiry for Ngondro and Mahamudra Program practice while we await the return of the North American program.

Death and Dying Seminar

PREPARING FOR YOUR OWN DEATH
A series of classes by Chozen Bays, Roshi, M.D. and Erik Fromme M.D.

Registration is through Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple, linked below

Most of our fear arises from fear of death.

An essential part of spiritual practice is to face the fact of our inevitable death and to prepare for it. To do this can be a gift to our family and friends. These classes will include meditations on death, writing advance directives, learning about the biological facts of death, and watching a few compelling videos. 

You may attend one or all of the classes; new material will be covered in each class.

Children's Blessing

CHILDREN'S BLESSING

One of KCC's traditions is the "Children’s Blessing" during which Lama Michael leads the teachers and community in welcoming children into the KCC sangha, and we celebrate our community's families and kids. 

It has been a while since our last Children’s Blessing and it is time to bring newer children into our community with a warm welcome! Any children of an older age who have not yet received this welcome blessing may also come.

Mind Training Study Group

This Fall, the Mind Training study group, led by Tim Campbell and Zopa Herron, embarks on an extensive exploration of the entire Lojong, or Mind Training tradition, including the Seven Points and beyond. We will engage in a study of the texts and practices compiled in the anthology, Essential Mind Training, translated and introduced by Thubten Jinpa, the translator for His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. This is the only source we will use, as it contains eighteen essential texts of this tradition. You will need this book for the class and can purchase copies from KCCs bookstore.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

NOVEMBER 25—27, 2016:  SAVE THE DATES!

Mark your calendars and plan to join KCC for a very special post-Thanksgiving weekend with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche!

On Friday evening (November 25), Rinpoche will discuss Buddhist approaches to working with emotions, including ways to release and transform emotions to reveal our innate wisdom.

The program for Saturday and Sunday (November 26—27) will cover the union of relative and ultimate bodhicitta, or, in other words, the union of profound compassion and deep insight.

Complete program details will be announced when confirmed.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist Master of the Kagyu Order. He is trained in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism under many great masters such as HH the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and HH Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche. His formal education was at Namgyal Institute of Tibetology, Gangtok and Sampurnananda Sanskrit University, Varanasi, India and he has served as Professor of Tibetology in Sikkim for 17 years. His doctoral thesis was on the Ecumenical (Rimey) Movement in Tibet.

Milarepa: Songs and Stories

THIS CLASS IS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE (IT WILL NOT BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 24).

WHEN THE NEW EVENT DATE IS CHOSEN, THE WEBSITE WILL BE UPDATED, AN ANNOUNCEMENT WILL BE SENT, AND REGISTRATION WILL RE-OPEN.

Thank you for your patience.


The amazing yogi, Milarepa, sang his songs almost 1000 years ago in 11th Century Tibet and Nepal. Yet, what he addresses in those songs: cultivating ordinary awareness, being a genuine human being and defeating the traps of ego are just what we find ourselves needing now in this apparently chaotic world.
