The focus of Marig Munsel is on building a strong foundational understanding of Buddhism. Lama Bruce Newman is an authorized teacher with many years of meditation experience and retreat, along with study abroad and in the West. His understanding of both Eastern and Western Dharma approaches makes him uniquely qualified to teach Dharma to Western students in a way they can truly understand and integrate into their daily lives. Designed for modern American householders Marig Munsel provides a rare opportunity to clarify the whole of the Buddhist path. In this first weekend of an ongoing quarterly series Lama Bruce Newman will be teaching from a quintessential text of Tibetan Buddhism The Jewel Ornament of Liberation, written by the great 12th century CE Kagyu teacher Gampopa, the foremost student of the great Tibetan yogi Milarepa.
Of course, attending all three sessions is recommended but partial attendance is permitted and no one will be refused attendance due to a lack of funds.
Lama Bruce Newman completed a four-year retreat under Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, and has 40 years of Kagyu and Nyingma training. Under the auspices of Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche he has been a full-time Dharma and meditation teacher for the past 20 years. Lama Bruces Marig Munsel program, offered at four Dharma centers in the USA and Mexico, is now in its 14th year. His candid book, A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism, has helped many students successfully navigate their way through the Vajrayana path.
