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 study the second volume,The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion, presents the bodhisattva teachings of the mahayana. At this point, having trained and seen the benefits of looking within through the hinayana path in Volume One, The Path of Individual Liberation, the meditation practitioner begins to shift the focus outward to the broader world.

You can 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.
