Teacher Training Program
with Kadam Peter Kurczynski
The Teacher Training Program will be studying: The New Guide to Dakini Land by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
This comprehensive guide provides a detailed and practical explanation of the two stages of Vajrayogini practice – generation stage and completion stage – and shows how we can integrate these practices into our daily life, thereby transforming every moment of our life into the path to enlightenment. It is a unique guide to becoming a Tantric enlightened being in the modern world.
The Teacher Training Program (TTP) provides a systematic presentation of all the subjects of Mahayana Buddhism and form a perfect basis for a strong daily practice and successful meditation retreats.
TTP involves two teaching and discussion classes each week. Classes take place on
Sundays 8:30 – 1 pm. Please contact the resident teacher, Kadam Peter Kurczynski for more information and to discuss the possibility of joining this class.
The Teacher Training Program is designed for people who wish to train as authentic
Dharma Teachers. However, not everyone on the TTP wishes to train as a teacher – many simply wish for the opportunity to study and practice Buddhism in the most thorough and systematic way. Teaching dharma is not a commitment of the TTP.
According to Venerable Geshe-la, the most important qualifications for joining the TTP
are pure motivation, correct view, and faith.
