Programs in Nyingma Meditation (MED)
During the 1970's, Tarthang Tulku presented traditional forms of Tibetan meditation in his Human Development programs and in his courses on meditation. Under Tarthang Tulku’s guidance, the Institute continues to focus on meditation as an essential part of all programs. Nearly all classes and programs incorporate some form of meditation practice such as basic mindfulness training, chanting, or silent sitting. Some are described in the Nyingma Psychology books (published by our sister organziation, Dharma Publishing), while others are based on classic shamatha (calming) and vipashyana (insight) practices.. The exercises presented in Path of Heroes are also used for developing insight into the nature of mind and perception.
