Awakening Wisdom

The Luminous Self

COURSE OVERVIEW

The recognition of the luminous self is considered to be a powerful way to uproot the causes of suffering. The key to recognition begins with an understanding about the empty nature and the luminosity of the mind. Luminosity, or clarity, allows all experience to take place, and thus we can access innate wisdom in the midst of all situations in life.

In this course, you will explore ways of experiencing all phenomena, even destructive emotions and suffering, through the lens of emptiness. With steady step-by-step practice, you can transform destructive emotions and challenges into wisdom and cultivate the fullness of who you are.
