Experience meditation

The practice of meditation is to learn to be fully present in each moment of our lives. So often we go through the day without being present, responding simply with habitual patterns of impulsivity or reactivity and preconceptions of how things should be.

Meditation is an opportunity to break through these patterns and preconceptions to gain a larger perspective in which openness and understanding can arise. From this perspective we can see things as they are and live in a more relaxed way with full attention on each moment.

A complete map of the Tibetan Buddhist path from beginning to end, as taught by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is based on the teachings presented at the annual three-month meditation and study retreats known as the Vajradhatu Seminaries, which he led every summer from 1973 to 1986. 

We will continue with first volume, The Path of Individual Liberation, which presents the teachings of the hinayana. The hinayana introduces core Buddhist teachings on the nature of mind, the practice of meditation, the reality of suffering, and the possibility of liberation. It examines the nature of suffering, impermanence, and egolessness, with an emphasis on personal development through meditative discipline and study.

Please purchase The Path of Individual Liberation through amazon.com or shambhala.com. Please call Alison Driscoll if you did not attend the previous series, so she can orient you to the material: 302.290.7445.
