The Four Dharmas of Gampopa is an onlline workshop on going beyond our insecurities and confusion towards the discovery of our basic goodness and innate wisdom.

The essential teachings of the buddhist path as transmitted through the Kagyu, or Practice Lineage of Tibet, were compressed into a four-line stanza by the lineage holder Gampopa (1071-1153). In this workshop, we unpack that stanza so that meditation practice could reveal our basic goodness and innate wisdom. Open to all.

There is a sourcebook available at Kalapa Media. The sourcebook is optional, but highly recommended. You do not need the sourcebook to attend the class. However, studying it will greatly enhance your understanding.

You can read more about the Four Dharmas of Gampopa on the Shambhala Times.
