Program Details

Essential Heart of Kasungship I

with Robin Rieck
August 14 / 7:00 PM - September 18 / 9:00 PM

Dorje Kasung is Tibetan for "indestructible protectors of the dharma." Protection in the Dorje Kasung occurs through cultivating an attitude of fundamental non-aggression and compassionate action that brings oneself and others back onto the path of awake. This protection has nothing to do with solidifying personal or collective territory, but rather extending sanity to others.

This program serves as an introduction to this major stream of the Chogyam Trungpa's teaching on "Protector Principle", and may be taken by the curious without making any commitment. For members of the Dorje Kasung, it is the beginning of the formal Dorje Kasung training path. This class explores in detail what it means to be a Dorje Kasung, why they might exist, and the view of how they act. Special attention is given to study of the Dorje Kasung Handbookand the Eight Slogans of the Dorje Kasung. The program ends with an opportunity to make a one-year commitment to Dorje Kasung practice, but it is not required.

EHOK 1 is a student-led series of five classes that meets once a week.  During each meeting, two participants will each present a brief ten-minute talk followed by discussion. Instructors will participate in the the class as well. 
Prior to the first class, attendees will be given a short article to read in preparation for the first class discussions.
