Flip Your Perspective: An Intro to Mind Training
eCourse Introduction: Tibetan Buddhist practice has an ancient way of training one’s mind, called Lojong. This practice has been refined over centuries and is now scientifically proven to improve mood and increase focus. But you don’t need to be a Buddhist—or any specific religion at all, for that matter—to benefit from its extensive lessons and practices.
In this short series, Lama Tsomo has chosen a few key elements of Lojong to help you begin to train your mind and flip your perspective of everyday experiences. These small but profound shifts will help you experience yourself and the world around you differently, with greater insight, compassion, and productivity.
Who is this for: Meditators & Non-meditators interested in handling stress and life’s challenges with more resiliency.
Course Length: Self-paced or One Week
What You’ll Gain: Tools and prompts for working with adversity, including Maxims for contemplation and practice.
Shamata: Tibetan Style
eCourse introduction: This self-paced eCourse is based around a Namchak Shamata Retreat. Shamata is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice meaning Calm Abiding or Peaceful Resting. The purpose of this practice is to bring your often-unrestful minds to a state of relaxation. You can imagine your disturbed (not at peace) mind as a pot of boiling water. Developing your Shamata practice is a method of bringing that water to a peaceful state.
Who is this for: Beginner to Advanced Meditators interested in looking for tangible ways to focus and calm their mind.
Course Length: Self-Paced or One Week
What You’ll Gain: Meditation practices for focusing and calming your mind.

These small but profound shifts will help you experience yourself and the world around you differently, with greater insight, compassion, and productivity.
