Guest Dharma Teacher
Francine Rainone

Join us on Sunday, January 29th,
as we welcome guest dharma teacher,
Francine Rainone
to our 8am virtual meditation and discussion.

TOPIC: Lojong

Lojong, or “Mind Training” is a method of developing our innate compassion and wisdom. It has seven major points, articulated in 59 slogans. Working with each slogan, we cut through the self-clinging and false identity of ego to help us become Bodhisattvas, beings who are devoted to ending the suffering of all beings. In this brief introduction I will introduce and talk about the relationship between Lojong and the practice of Tonglen, highlight some of the slogans and give references for further study.

Francine Rainone has been studying and practicing Buddhism her entire adult life. A

retired physician, her Buddhist teachers include Roshi Joan Halifax, Lama Surya Das,

Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, Lama Willa Baker (formerly Miller), Lama Tsultrim

Allione and Tsoknyi Rinpoche. Although she has studied many traditions, her main

practices are currently Dzogchen and Chod. She is also influenced and informed by

her practice of Qi Gong.
