Always Smiling eCourse

Always Smiling: An 8-Week Introduction to Tibetan Buddhist Practice

Taught by Lama Tsomo in her accessible and playful style, this eCourse is designed for people curious about meditation and its benefits. Students will receive an introduction to Buddhist practice, gain access to meaningful self-reflective exercises, and be introduced to meditation techniques that have been used for thousands of years.

Each week, students receive an email from Lama Tsomo that includes a link to how-to meditation videos, short readings, and discussion questions. The eCourse is being offered free of charge for a limited time in conjunction with the launch of Why is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?

Purchase of Lama Tsomo’s book, Why is The Dalai Lama Always Smiling? is not required to participate in the Namchak eCourse or the Learning Circle activities.
