Adventures in Knowledge 2

with Jack Petranker
August 28 – October 9, 2021
9 AM – 10:30 AM Pacific time

The Time Space Knowledge vision teaches that knowledge is our birthright. When we learn to open space and activate time, our deeper capacities shine forth, and knowledge shows up spontaneously.

This six-week course is based on Chapters 13 to 17 of Tarthang Tulku’s Love of Knowledge. The readings will help us see how our mistaken ways of knowing have trapped us in unhealthy patterns and unsatisfying experiences. Working playfully with exercises drawn from the book, we will explore other ways of knowing, not bound to measured-out time and meaningless space.

The exploration we launch in this course will continue in the fall, when we study Chapters 18-25 of Love of Knowledge, focusing on the self and how we block our own transformation.

Full Presence Mindfulness
Day Retreat

with Jack Petranker
at Ratna Ling Retreat Center among the beautiful Northern California redwoods
September 28 – October 3, 2021
Cost: $750 – $1,500 sliding scale; contact us if additional financial assistance is needed.

The mindfulness movement has popularized a healthier way of relating to thoughts and emotions. Full Presence Mindfulness builds on this movement, drawing on the teachings of Tibetan Lama Tarthang Tulku, as presented in his Time, Space, Knowledge Vision. FPM is designed to open every dimension of our experience —sensations, emotions, thoughts, and how we connect with others. It offers a new way to see the world and our place in it.

Except for evening sessions, the retreat program will be held in silence. We start with breathing and sensory exercises for grounding, then go on to look at how we shape our world through the stories we tell and live. As we learn to recognize the patterns that hold us back, we find new resources for acting on our highest values and promoting real and lasting change.
