Textbooks for Radiance Sutras Meditation Teacher Training



We have three main textbooks for the training. Each one has been written and rewritten and rewritten again to be as succinct and useful as possible, inviting attention to be with the skills of intimacy with the life force in meditation.

1. The Radiance Sutras (Sounds True, 2014). The Sutras describe over a hundred different doorways into meditation, in brief poetic language. This provides a useful overview of the different ways people can approach developing a practice. Almost everyone already knows several of these doors – they discovered them in the process of living and loving. You will want to have both a physical copy of the book plus an ebook.

Depending on your learning style, you may want to listen to the books on audio as well as read them. Each of us is different in our best learning style – we may prefer some combination of visual learning, listening, and embodying the knowledge through movement and meditation. To honor this, you will be able to select a path of learning that works for you, selecting from the audio and visual content.
