Join Shastri Ethan Nichtern for a six-week course that introduces the Tantric Path and practices. The course will cover the view of Vajrayana in relationship to the meditation practices we are each working with, the ethics of knowing what to do in everyday life situations, and a way to work directly with emotions.

We will explore how Tantra speaks directly to modern life in a globalized and virtual world in 2013. Specific topics will include: The View of Tantra, Working with Emotions, Knowing What To Do In A Crazy World, Reimagining the World through Visualization, What Happens When We Die, and Working with a Teacher.
