2017.5.3-5.7 Lojong Training

Lojong training ~ Dr. Barry Kerzin, a medical doctor and professor, will teach Tibetan Buddhist approaches to healthcare professionals – Mind Training Cultivating Compassion – Meditation workshops: levels 1, 2, 3.
———————————
This course is designed to help healthcare professionals have more meaningful professional lives as well as more meaningful personal lives. The focus of this course is to learn methods to find inner peace and happiness through lojong (Tibetan), or mind training. We will do this by primarily focusing on cultivating love, compassion, and caring for others. To supplement this we will learn how to meditate. Doctors and healthcare professionals are being asked about meditation. Some patients want to learn about this in order to enhance their own wellbeing and possibly their own healing.

This will be an in-depth course divided into three levels – about two days for each level. Each day will be divided into 90-minute blocks. Each block will consist of lectures, discussion, questions and answers, as well as meditation training coming mostly in level 3. In level 3 we will read, and discuss the Eight Verses of Mind Training by Geshe Langri Thangpa. This text is about 1000 years old.

Any healthcare professional who has interest can join regardless of her or his background in meditation. We welcome beginners as well as those with some experience. I will be teaching this course that is hosted by the Heart Sharing Network of St. Luke’s hospital, and the Human Values Institute of Tokyo, of and is supported by the Psycho-Oncology department of St. Luke’s hospital.

Sincerely yours,
Barry Kerzin, M.D.
Chairman, Human Values Institute
