Welcome new and returning students!

First-year Level 1 courses (Mahamudra shamatha meditation and Mind and Its World study) are open to all students, with no prerequisites. However, basic knowledge of Buddhist philosophy is highly recommended.

If you would like to attend higher levels, or the Luminous Essence (Guhyabarbha) course, you will need to fulfill some prerequisites. Some prerequisites can be fulfilled by:

  1. having previously attended the Summer Institute,
  2. having taken pre-summer online courses before the Summer Institute, or
  3. having other prior experience.
