In the Fall of 2017, WBC launched a new curriculum in order to offer students the clearest possible presentation of Buddhist wisdom. Our earlier courses, which had been based on a popular books, have been replaced by this new progressive sequence of classes that present an overview of the Buddhist path from start to finish, as presented by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The full sequence of new courses is carefully designed to guide the student on the complete journey through logical progression of topics that constitute the Buddhist view, with an emphasis on joining our understanding with our meditation practice. Since the curriculum is sequential, the Winter and Spring 2018 Foundation classes build on the material presented in the prior Fall classes. However, the Winter classes presented below are also designed to ‘stand alone’, and would benefit students even if they had not attended the Fall classes. We encourage students to join the class at any point in the first year, but especially at this juncture, the start of this Winter semester.

Completion of the first year Foundation series is recommended before continuing on to the intermediate level: a deeper exploration and review of the path, in the Profound Treasury Series. This intermediate series of courses will be offered once students complete the Foundation Series. In turn, completion of the Profound Treasury courses will allow students to progress onto the Varjrayana Series. For more on the WBC “Path” of practice and study, click here

Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha


A Series of Courses on the Fundamentals of Buddhist Meditation and Insight, as presented by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Offered in two locations: Eileen Fisher Headquarters in Irvington & The Center for Health and Healing in Mount Kisco

  • In Irvington: $100 for one seven-week segment, or $180 for both (includes sourcebook).
  • In Mount Kisco: $90 for one six-week segment, or $160 for both (includes sourcebook).


The Foundation Level courses offered in Irvington and Mount Kisco are not identical, but cover similar material in slightly different ways. Having two different parallel courses allows us to keep the class sizes small, and keep the exploration relevant to the experience of the students.

Readings will be from a wide variety of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s writings. A sourcebook of all of the readings will be provided. This series is recommended for both beginning and returning practitioners. For more detailed information, and to register, please follow the link below for your location.

We encourage you to register, or please also feel free to drop in the first class meeting, where you can receive a syllabus and learn more.
