I’m very excited to announce that Lama Shadi Mogadime of 3 Jewels Vancouver will be returning to Toronto to teach ACI Course 17: The Great Ideas of Buddhism, Part II, over two weekends in January. This is a rare opportunity for in-depth study of Buddhism with a remarkable teacher and experienced practitioner.
This course is an overview of ACI Courses 6-10, serving as either an introduction for those new to Buddhism, or as a review for those who have previously taken these courses. Topics covered include: The Diamond Cutter Sutra, Bodhisattva Vows, Death and the Realms of Existence, The Ethical Life (Vinaya) and The Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.
The Asian Classics Institutee is dedicated to the study and personal practice of the original teachings of the Buddha. The Institute was established by Geshe Michael Roach under the spiritual direction of Khen Rinpoche Geshe Lobsang Tharchin, a distinguished scholar and master of Buddhism from Tibet.
Shadi Mogadime is a certified Yoga Instructor, Master Coach, Buddhist Philosophy Teacher, and Mentor. She has studied many spiritual traditions and modern modalities to the level of mastery including Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Reiki, and Shamanism. She has over 15 years of Buddhist studies including the completion of all 18 Asian Classic Institutes courses along with a rigorous 7-year program in advance studies at Diamond Mountain University and with her heart teacher Lama Sumati Marut. Shadi served for over three years as Lama Marut’s Assistant, Tour & Business Manager. She is the publisher of AwakeningJournal.org (the ezine about retreat) and works in the community as a fundraising consultant to non-profit organizations of all types.
