About the Event
The eight extremes are eight ways in which out of ignorance we misapprehend reality. Due to this we perceive ourselves to be in a state of painful isolation from others and our world. We see our limitations as real and we feel stuck, completely cut off from the extraordinary potential for limitless happiness, love, and freedom that exists within all of us.
During this meditation course, we will use the eight extremes as the springboard for exploring emptiness - the true nature of things - from different angles. Through contemplating production, subtle impermanence, singularity and other misunderstood characteristics of reality, we will enhance our experience of emptiness, the solution to all of our problems, and its application to our daily life.
Set in the blessed environment of KMC Colorado (and available online as well), this is an event not to be missed for those who wish to better understand and experience the liberating wisdom of emptiness.

Our main teacher at KMC Colorado is Kadam Lucy James. One of the senior teachers of Kadampa Buddhism, Kadam Lucy has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped set up many thriving meditation centers since 1981. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and Europe due to her skill in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity. For many years, one of her main jobs was to help with the editing and production of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books, and she has engaged in extensive meditation retreat.
