Meditation is practiced through guided instruction geared to the needs of those in attendance.Various texts are also studied and discussed to deepen our understanding of Buddhist Philosophy.Our meditation group in Miami has been together for 5 years and decided to expand in order to benefit more people from our meditation classes and study group.

Weekly Online Teachings With Dharma Teacher Rachel Parrish

Join us for a weekly dose of Dharma online with Rachel Parrish, hosted by the Bodhi Path Center in Chicago. Each session begins promptly at 11:30am, with a brief orientation, reciting the refuge & bodhicitta prayers, and 15 minutes of shiné meditation, followed by a teaching and discussion on the classic text A Letter to a Friend, by Nagarjuna. These sessions are relaxed, informal, and there is plenty of time for Q&A! Please contact us by email at [masked] to obtain a direct link to the event.

Rachel Parrish was born and grew up in the Midwestern United States. After graduating from university with a degree in English, Chemistry, and Art History, she traveled in Europe, where she discovered the Dharma at Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in France. After living there for three years to prepare for a retreat, she then completed two traditional three-year retreats in Kundreul Ling, which was established by the late Gendun Rinpoche, a very highly realized Tibetan master. After this she completed a one year solitary retreat at Dhagpo Kagyu Ling. Rachel is now based at the Bodhi Path Buddhist Center in Chicago, occasionally traveling to other centers in the United States and working on a translation team founded by the 14th Shamarpa.

The book: A PATH OF PRACTICE by Shamar Rinpoche edited by Tina Draszxzyk
In Toward Awakening: The Bodhi Path Program, Künzig Shamar Rinpoche offers his vision of focused Dharma practice with the power to lead practitioners in today’s world toward achieving the state of awakening. His emphasis lies in general on Mahāyāna Buddhism as the essential support of such practice, and in particular on the path of Mahāmudrā as transmitted in the Kagyü tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. From these perspectives, he describes the various elements of meditation practice, that is, the path of Dharma to be walked consistently. In addition, he recommends the study of certain Buddhist topics which can help a meditator to navigate through the different layers of his or her spiritual practice and encourages practitioners to develop the right view which can then lead the meditation.
