Mindfulness For Awakening, Mindfulness for Everyday Difficulties


Friday, Oct 26, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Sat & Sun, Oct 27 & 28, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm


Since everything we do is centered around being happy and avoiding suffering, and since the nature of mind comprises the lasting happiness we are seeking, to sharpen one’s understanding of this nature and to know the methods for realizing it are totally central to our lives and our path. This also explains the importance of overcoming the obstacles to realizing the nature of mind. It is about how illness, emotional disturbance and all of our confusion are an essential part of the solution.

These are the issues at the very heart of the instructions transmitted by great masters, like Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche. Jim Scott has agreed to join us in reviewing Rinpoche’s own words in giving these instructions which frequently take the form of commentaries to songs of realization. And yes, we will sing them too.

Jim Scott’s life has been dedicated to the pursuit of the contemplative life, originally as a Christian monk at a Trappist monastery, then as a student of philosophy at St. John’s College, and finally as a student and practitioner of the Kagyu lineage following Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche around the globe for some thirty years. Jim is well known for both his translation work and his musical compositions of the songs of Milarepa.

He lives in Denmark, where he founded a Buddhist society inspired by both the 16th Karmapa and Kalu Rinpoche, and he teaches annually at Pullahari Monastery in Nepal, and in Europe. He has translated many of Milarepa’s songs and, as with Khenpo Rinpoche, songs are integral to his teachings. Participants appreciate his big heart, warmth, humor, singing voice, and clear teachings.
