The Somatic Practice of Bodhicitta:
Loving the Self
With Reggie Ray and Caroline Pfohl
Awaken Your Heart and Engage the Sacred Within
The Boundless Heart and Loving the Self online course guides students into the third yana — Love and Compassion — whereby we train in awakening our hearts.
In this course, we explore ultimate bodhicitta — the fundamental, eternal, infinite openness of the heart — and maitri, or loving-kindness, toward oneself. A somatic understanding of the ultimate and an ability to appreciate the sacredness of our own being are essential in order to love others and to be of benefit to the world.
Boundless Heart I is the third online course in the Dharma Ocean Foundation Series. It offers experiential training in the core somatic teachings and practices of this lineage. These Foundation Courses are designed to be incremental, with each course building on the practices of the previous ones. In order to get the most of out this program, participants are required to have taken the online courses Awakening the Body and The Somatic Practice of Pure Awareness, or to have gained experience of the practices taught in these courses by attending corresponding Dharma Ocean residential retreats.
The course includes:
- 10 units of study and practice, including video teachings and audio guided meditations
- Practice resources and chants
- Study questions
- Curriculum audio downloads
Participation in this course requires completion of the Somatic Practice of Pure Awareness online course. This prerequisite is also satisfied through participation in the Winter Meditation Intensive residential retreat, or another practice intensive focusing on the Somatic Practice of Pure Awareness.
