Online Five Elements Course Begins Jan. 11, 2014

5elementscovergraphic200xLigmincha Learning is pleased to offer a six-week online course, “The Five Elements: Healing with Form, Energy and Light,” from Jan. 11–Feb. 22, 2014. The course will give participants a thorough introduction to the Five Elements practices of the Bon Buddhist tradition. 

The six-week course is based on videos of Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche exploring how each of the five elements relates to our daily experiences, emotions and relationships. Rinpoche guides meditations for each of the elements, designed to help clear our obstacles and bring balance to our lives.

Each section of the course includes a video of Rinpoche’s teaching and guided meditation, plus readings from his book Healing with Form, Energy and Light. In addition, the course features meditation and reading assignments, journal writing activities, and weekly online discussions with classmates from around the world facilitated by John Jackson, director of the Chamma Ling Colorado retreat center.

The course is structured in six parts, with one week devoted to each section. Learners can study at their own pace and have access to all materials as they are released, so it is easy to review earlier sections. Topics for each week include:
1. Overview of the Five Elements
2. The Earth Element
3. The Water Element
4. The Fire Element
5. The Air Element
6. The Space Element
