Coemergent Chaos – Taking Turbulence as Practice

Invoking the essential teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
A class for Vajrayana practitioners

Dragon Painting by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche *

Monday, Oct. 8 – Dec. 17, 2018
Dharma Ocean Hall
7102 La Vista Place, Niwot, Co.
(See directions below)


“When Trungpa Rinpoche passed away he knew exactly what would be happening 20 years, 30 years after his passing. So his students should reflect back on Cutting Through and practice it. These teachings are special for this time. So it is important to read it. …Cutting Through is Trungpa Rinpoche’s own commentary on the Sadhana of Mahamudra.” —Changling Rinpoche


Course Description: This series will incorporate study, talks, practice and discussion, with an emphasis on communication among participants, engaging Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism as the primary text. We will look at Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism from a Vajrayana perspective in order to further bring the significance and power of these essential teachings into our own lives and circumstances.

When: Monday evenings, Oct. 8 – Dec. 17, 7pm-9pm (except for the week of Monday, Nov. 5, during which Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will present a talk for Ri-mé Society)

Where: The new Dharma Ocean, 7102 La Vista Place, Niwot, Colo. (see directions below)

Cost: $125

Financial Aid: Ri-mé Society will accommodate anyone needing financial assistance to attend Ri-mé Society classes and events. If this applies to you, send your request for financial assistance to rimesociety@yahoo.com.

Who: This class is open to anyone who has received formal Vajrayana transmission, or pointing out instruction, from a qualified Vajarayana lineage holder. For any questions about this, please write to rimesociety@yahoo.com.

Changling Rinpoche Seminar: The Ocean website is hosting an upcoming online seminar (Nov. 10, 11 & 17) with Changilng Rinpoche entitled Cutting Through Ego Fixation, centering on a text of mind teachings by Khenpo Gangshar, Instructions for Dratsün Wangchuk, and on Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism. We highly recommend that participants in this Ri-mé Society class also enroll for those teachings as a complement to our class. For more information go to: Changling Rinpoche Ocean Seminar.

Directions to Dharma Ocean
7102 La Vista Place
Niwot, CO 80503

Recommended and safest route:

1. Take the Boulder-Longmont Diagonal from Boulder to Niwot Road.

2. At the traffic light there, exit LEFT (west) onto Niwot Road

3. Drive to 71st St and take a LEFT.

4. Drive to Monarch Road.

5. La Vista Place is on the Southeast corner of Monarch Road and 71st St.

6. Dharma Ocean is on the first floor of the building at the Southeast corner of the multi-building complex…closest to the Diagonal Highway. Enter through the doors at the east side of the building (the end closest to the Diagonal).

The new facility is only 6.1 miles and about 8 minutes from Iris and 28th, except during rush hour. Our events will not coincide with rush hour.

The more direct route, which GPS will show, involves taking a left off the Diagonal Highway at Monarch Road. It requires crossing the busy westbound lanes of the highway without a traffic light, which can be dangerous, and so is not recommended.
