Teacher Training Program (TTP) is a perfect opportunity to deeply study the texts of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and take your practice to new heights. We are currently studying Tantric Grounds & Paths, a unique guide to transforming each moment of our life into the path of becoming a Tantric enlightened being in the modern world. Classes include guided meditations, commentary to the text, and paired and group discussion. As this is a study program, each student is encouraged to join only if they can attend on a regular basis.
