Our Teacher Training Programme (TTP) explores all of Buddha’s teaching of Sutra and Tantra and provides the basis for ones own practice and for sharing the teachings with others. We are currently studying the book Clear Light of Bliss, a commentary to Vajrayana Mahamudra.
The structure of classes is similar to FP with preparatory prayers, guided meditation, teaching and discussion.
Both Buddha’s Sutra and Tantric teaching are studied and the programme inlcudes a number of meditation retreats, which can be done at home or as a group a centre.
The TTP class runs on Mondays 9.15am to 12.45pm, with a break at 11.15.
What happens in an TTP class?
We begin with traditional prayers to calm and prepare the mind as well as a guided meditation on a topic from the previous class. The teacher then covers a section from the book clarifying the important points and illustrating ways in which the ideas can be put into practice.
Anyone can ask questions that they may have at any time. We then split up into pairs to explore the main points of the teaching, help each other to learn them, overcome doubts or misunderstandings and to arrive at a clear understanding of how to apply them in our daily life.
