About this event

Learn the meaning of tantra, how tantra works and why it is such a powerful form of practice. Get a broad overview of the four classes of tantra and learn how to practice simple kriya tantric methods. In addition, find out how to integrate the practices of tantra with the lam rim meditation for optimal results.

The aim of this course is to give you an overview of the entire Buddhist path from the tantric perspective, so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to enter the tantric path. Clear up some common misunderstandings, put your own practice into perspective, and develop the tools to make your decision from a place of wisdom and compassion. The unit also has helpful tips on how to set up a retreat, what practices to start with, and how to integrate tantra into your lamrim studies.

About the Presenter

Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program at Langri Tangpa Centre, and is an FPMT registered teacher. She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business in Melbourne, when her mother Inta Mckimm (who ran LTC) became sick with cancer in 1997. Packing her bags for two weeks, she is still here over twenty years later! Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child, and his hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. Miffi's passion is in bridging the seemingly disparate worlds of modern life and the rich inner experience of Buddhist practice. She readily admits to watching far too much late night TV and is an avid New Yorker Magazine reader.
