About the Event


This class introduces the art of role-modeling in the Nalanda tradition, considered the quickest, most effective way of developing our innate genius for altruistic engagement with all life and the earth we share.  By binding our compassionate openness with heroic imagery and affirmation, safe in the crucible of a close mentor-student bond, this art catalyzes the alchemical change we need to create a new, ideal self and world. After reviewing the basics and the neuropsychology of this art, Dr. Loizzo covers the seven steps of role-modeling imagery, based on the traditional Tibetan practice of the Healing Mentor (Bhaishajya-guru) and Healing Mother (Arya-Tara).  The fifth course in the Four Year Program in Sustainable Happiness, this class is open to all, whether or not you’ve taken prior Four Year classes.
