Alan Wallace on the Wisdom Experience

“If you are drawn to furthering and deepening your understanding and enriching your practice of Dharma, I would encourage you to participate in the Wisdom Experience. It opens the door to a great treasure trove of teachings by outstanding Tibetan lamas, scholars, and yogis, as well as western or non-Tibetan teachers of Buddhism. The benefits are very great.”
