Our lectures usually last up to two hours and include a short, guided experience of our main meditation practice. There will be chances to ask questions throughout the evening!

There is a suggested donation of $10 for this lecture.


From Lama Ole Nydahl's book, The Way Things Are:

"All beings seem to be conscious of how they feel, a capacity that seems to be independent of whatever other talent they may possess. On this point, no help is needed. Buddha only becomes necessary for pointing out what people usually do not comprehend. Without him, they miss the radiant mirror behind the images, the timeless and unconditioned consciousness behind all things, the experience of highest bliss inherent in mind's richness, the joy that encompasses everything and is inseparable from enlightenment."


Tal became a student of Lama Ole Nydahl in 1999 during his first visit to Israel. In 2010, Lama Ole asked her to teach in Diamond Way Buddhist Centers. Tal currently works as an aerobic instructor and a personal trainer.


The Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Madison and the University of Wisconsin-Madison chapter of Diamond Way Buddhism belong to an international, non-profit network of nearly 700 lay groups and centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Diamond Way centers have been founded by Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl and are under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.
