Live Webinar


Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, renowned Buddhist teacher, will share practices & wisdom for the cultivatation of patience and an open heart. In the Buddhist tradition, “patience” is our mind’s ability to work positively with anything that bothers us. In fluid, accessible language, Dzigar Kongtrul expands on ancient teachings that contain powerful methods for preventing our minds from becoming consumed and overwhelmed. The result of practicing patience is a state of mind where we can feel at home in every situation and be fully available to love & care for others. Patience is the lifeblood of a peaceful heart.

“In the more than two decades since I’ve met Rinpoche, he has given me many priceless instructions on how to work with my own impatient states of mind.”
