Join Dza Kilung Rinpoche in learning to release tension while attaining deeper concentration and focus. He will guide us through an afternoon of Buddhist philosophy and The Sevent Meditations, showing us how to cultivate our inner strength to face the outward turbulence of the present time.
The Seven Meditations help you establish and stabilize the view, the true nature of your mind. The view is the deep, felt-sense wisdom gained as a result of awareness practice. View is the clear understanding of what leads to suffering and what leads to the end of suffering. What we need to wake up is already here; it is, in fact our very nature! View orients us toward ethics, non-harm, generosity, compassion, and being of benefit to ourselves and others. It shifts our habitual rigid focus to a larger and more spacious vista; seeing the vast 360 degree perspective that has been there all along, waiting for us to wake up to it.
When we practice and go deeper with meditation it supports and sustains us both on and off the cushion. It creates a refuge of happiness and freedom accessible at all times. Dza Kilung Rinpoche will guide us in seeing meditation as a space free of suffering. We can learn how to let go during challenging times. We can train our minds to let go of clinging, craving, and delusion. Instead we can create a new habit of spaciousness, compassion, connection, love, and freedom that is always available.
