Individual Mentoring Program–Year-Long

This year-long mentoring program includes all of the multi-media materials you need for the program (audios and videos), plus one-on-one mentoring sessions with Tina.

The Individual Mentoring Program is for people who have a deep interest and commitment to their own unfoldment as they experience it in their worldly lives. It is a version of the year-long Group Mentoring Program, which Tina offered three times previously, and is now customized for interested practitioners to complete on a 1:1 basis. It is helpful for people who are sincerely interested in the deeper questions of life in engaging “the mystery” as householders.

The Mentoring Program has an emphasis on the broader Buddhist / spiritual path including a full spectrum of spiritual practices, modern personality work, and integration and embodiment of awakening in our worldly life as we live it. Engaging in mentoring for a full year provides an understanding and experience of practices that are important to consider for a well-rounded spiritual unfoldment of one’s deepest nature. Monthly topics/practices include:

  • Month 1–General Program Overview
  • Month 2–The Enneagram, and Personality:  Working with Ourselves Skillfully
  • Month 3–Inquiry (Curious Presence in Daily Life), and the Judge / SuperEgo
  • Month 4–Sila and Wholesome Living
  • Month 5–Awakening and the 4 Centers and Instinctual Drives
  • Month 6–Heart-Based:  The BramaViharas & Bodhicitta / Purification of Heart
  • Month 7–Focused Attention: Samatha / Purification of Mind
  • Month 8–Open Monitoring:  Vipassana / Purification of View
  • Month 8–Self-Transcending:  Dzogchen and Non-duality / Purification of Identity
  • Month 10–Embodiment and Body-based Practices
  • Month 11–Worldly Practice and Socially Engaged Buddhism
  • Month 12–Integration, and Your Vision and Intention

The program includes twelve 55-minute 1:1 mentoring sessions with Tina via zoom; video and audio recordings of Tina’s teaching on each monthly practice; a reading and links list for each month;  PDF reading downloads and links; and homework/reflection questions for each month. In cases where more than one person is starting the program at around the same time, and individuals want contact with other like-minded people, access to “dharma buddies” from around the world may also be available. Or, you could choose to do the program with a friend that you already know, and do the program together. The cost for this is $2295. You can start any time, with the program lasting a year. Please email us first, using the Contact Us page, to see when there is an opening in the program, as there is often a wait list. You can also email using the Contact Us page if you have any questions you’d like to ask about the program.
