Tibetan Buddhist practice has an ancient way of training one's mind, called Lojong. This practice has been refined over centuries and is now scientifically proven to improve mood and increase focus. But you don't need to be a Buddhist—or any specific religion at all, for that matter—to benefit from its extensive lessons and practices.

This course is an ideal next step if you found our "Flip Your Perspective: An Intro to Mind Training" course beneficial.

In this extended Lojong series, Lama Tsomo takes you on a deeper dive into the key elements of Lojong. This course provides teachings, personal anecdotes, guided meditations, and journal prompts from Lama Tsomo giving you tools and practices to train your mind and flip your perspective of everyday experiences. These small but profound shifts will help you experience yourself and the world around you differently, with greater insight, compassion, and productivity. This course is designed for participants to complete one session per day for 28 days, but you can savor each day and practice as long as you'd like!
