This year’s Great Seal Course in Estes Park, Colorado will be an immersive five-day experience of digging into Buddhism’s most profound teachings, learning advanced meditation techniques, and connecting with a vibrant lay Buddhist community.
A Diamond Way Buddhist course has something for all skill levels. Experienced meditators will use the time to recharge and deepen their own practice while those new to Diamond Way Buddhism will get a thorough experiential introduction. The dynamic of new and old creates a rich backdrop for the highly engaging teachings of the Diamond Way.
This course will be guided by Lama Ole Nydahl, a meditation master in the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Lama Ole is the founder of more than 50 groups and centers in the US and nearly 700 across the world. During this course he will teach on the Great Seal (Mahamudra in Sanskrit; Chag Chen in Tibetan), which is considered to be the crown jewel of Buddha’s teachings.
Each day of the course will include lectures, meditation and Q&A with Lama Ole. Diamond Way teachers will also give panel lectures, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn the unique meditation practices that we do in our centers.
