Michael Stone was a beloved teacher of meditation, yoga, and mindfulness. His passing in 2017 was a shock to all. We at Lion’s Roar were always honored to work with Michael, publishing his writing in Lion’s Roar magazine and developing A Buddhist Course in Mindfulness with him.
The course features Michael the way so many people experienced him as a teacher and friend: articulate, engaging, good-humored (sometimes downright funny!) — and in gentle mastery of his subject matter.
Engaging in mindfulness helps us cultivate the courage to meet what arises in our lives as it arises, and to not hold on to it. It’s simpler than you think — especially when you have access to a great teacher, possessed of warmth and steeped in Buddhist mindfulness training and practice.
In 3+ hours, featuring 2 in-depth guided meditations, this course presents Michael at his eloquent best, teaching you not just about mindfulness, but giving you the foundation for a lifetime of realizing it — and enjoying it.
Also included are helpful review materials to reinforce what you’ve learned, and further readings (specially selected by the editors of Lion’s Roar) by some of today’s finest Buddhist teachers, including Pema Chödrön, Sharon Salzberg, and Norman Fischer.
Enroll today to make the life-changing benefits of mindfulness practice yours with A Buddhist Course in Mindfulness.
