Bringing the Teachings Home

There is no one “right” way to learn and everyone learns at their own speed. Some of us learn by writing or by reading and reciting and others learn better through seeing or hearing. Some us have long commutes and busy days with little time to sit and delve into a text while others may have the time but benefit from direction and guidance in their study and practice.

So, in addition to our Self-Study ePrograms, the Dharma Publishing Academy offers a range of audio and video products to bring teachings and practice to you. All of our programs are based on the teachings in Dharma Publishing’s books and teachings by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, including Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga and Skillful Means – teachings on human development at work. Whether you’re listening on an MP3 player or practicing at home with a Kum Nye DVD, we hope you will find these programs a support for the unfolding of your potential as human being.

In addition to the programs below Dharma Publishing Academy also offers full-length retreat recordings, and recordings of our webinar classes for those who wish to deepen their engagement with our disciplines of study.

You are also invited to check out our upcoming retreats, and our webinar schedule for the chance to study together in person or online!
