The Eileen Fisher Headquarters in Irvington

2 Bridge Street, Irvington, NY 10533 (See detailed directions below)


Led by Senior Teachers Gene Bobker and Jane Kolleeny

Supported by teaching assistants




The Hinayana or “Path of “Individual Liberation” is covered in the first volume of the recently published three-volume set, The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. These texts are a wonderfully edited and organized compilation of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings given at thirteen years of annual three-month seminary programs for advanced students. 

The topics covered in this course are the initial or entry stages into the path, the three jewels, the non-theistic nature of taking refuge in the three jewels, the nature and development of discipline, and detailed instructions on the practice of meditation. 

This course is designed for those who attended our one-year WBC foundational course Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha. However, it is also suitable for anyone who has maintained a regular meditation practice for a year or more and is familiar with the fundamental principles of the Buddhist path.  Please contact one of the teachers (Jane Kolleeny at or Gene Bobker at to discuss whether this course is appropriate for you.

Enrollees should commit to attending all or most of the class sessions, i.e., this is not a drop-in format. Additionally, participants will need to purchase volume one of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma (available by mail from Shambhala or Amazon).
