Find True Refuge


Now Available as a Stand-alone Course

 Tibet’s Gradual Path (Lam Rim) offers a comprehensive and systematic roadmap from human misery to enlightenment, guiding the spiritual practitioner through a series of well tread developmental steps in order to achieve specific meditative milestones along the way. In this course we will follow the initial steps common to practitioner’s of small and medium capacity including contemplations on precious human life, death, karma, and distaste for compulsive life leading to the milestones of true refuge and transcendent renunciation.

Throughout the course Miles will offer a series of guided contemplations on the early stages of the Lam Rim that can standalone or be placed within the context of a comprehensive visualization practice called the six preliminaries.
