"Seeking human kindness"

LOVE IN THE TIME
OF THE VIRUS


We invite you to join ACI online course
Insights Online: Love in the Time of the Virus.
We will be deeply investigating how to foster loving and profound motivations to serve others and turn even the smallest acts of kindness into a powerful method to eradicate the virus and suffering from the world.

In this course, we will learn how to answer the call for human kindness amidst this great pandemic while letting go of our tendencies to primarily focus on ourselves. Additionally, what tools can we use to respond with these challenges right around us, in our home communities, in order to have a lasting impact? How does serving others first become the cause to end great suffering and finally, what visions and motivations can we hold in our heart to bring all this about effectively and rapidly?

FINANCES AND ACCESS

It has always been, and remains the mission of the Asian Classics Institute to make the teachings accessible and available to the world, free of charge. Our teachers, including Geshe Michael Roach, offer this wisdom without receiving any compensation for their teachings, nor is there any amount built into the production budget to pay teachers for their time.

We do, however, incur in many costs in the production and distribution of the teachings. These can be quite extensive, like travel, lodging, event logistics and equipment, along with archiving, videoing, online streaming, broadcasting, translation,  and the necessary support staff to handle each of these important tasks.

The cost of this course will be allocated to bringing this course to you online. There are about 30 amazing people working hard behind the scenes in technology, video editing, translation, curriculum development, course moderation, and project management. Many of these individuals are volunteering their time, as they stand behind us in the larger mission of the organization.

Our hope is that this course is wildly successful. After our production costs are satisfied, we will be moving any earned revenue towards the development of MORE online trainings and courses in the ACI INSIGHTS series. There are many people in the world who are not able to attend our retreats due to work or financial reasons, and our goal is to reach as many people as possible. We’ve only been focusing on our in-person events and the current challenges of the world have forced us to think differently about our content delivery methods. This is just the beginning of many new ways we envision access to this indispensable wisdom from the Buddha.

As with all our programs, the content will be available on the The Knowledge Base website, free of charge, following the program. It is important to us that everyone has the ability to touch these teachings and apply them in their lives, irrespective of their financial means.

"HOW WILL THIS HELP MY LEARNING?"

This course is designed to create a community of practitioners and guide the participants through the material, step-by-step, and provide real-time feedback on each of your journeys.

The online retreat exceeded my expectations by far. I was not sure what to expect, and it was exactly what I needed to cope with all the emotions and stress from the world's health crisis. The best part was that at all times I felt supported and part of a community who was training and learning to understand how to eradicate suffering in the world. I missed being physically close to Geshe-la, but I was also thankful that I could repeat and pause his lessons whenever they got to complicated, haha. Additionally, the online format was overall PERFECT and very creative. I really enjoyed being part of the first ever online retreat.

I believe I feel the impact of what I learnt in this course every day following the Lam Rim retreat. My thoughts about the cycle of life, death and my observation on how I do create a circle of suffering in my daily life continue. It's fascinating and it's scary. It's so simple to understand, but so hard to break through and get out. It's a life changing experience and I want more. As GMR says, I want go to "deeper".

The ACI online course using video's, zoom calls and the Facebook discussions and study groups was an invaluable way of studying the dharma. I was able to be part of a huge event without having to travel and able to feel safe during the pandemic while having access to the very profound teachings. The length of the retreat being 2 months meant that we had a longer time to develop more beneficial habits in terms of our practice and thoughts. Overall a truly beneficial experience. The whole organization with so many volunteers with so many languages across the world was truly fantastic and skillful. Thank you so much!
