By cutting through the dictates of habitual patterns, the equanimity of our own nature can be discovered. With this clarity and wisdom as our reference point, this precious human life can be fulfilled. —Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche
Beyond the tried and true descriptors for what it means to be sane, there is the basic, self-existing sanity we are born with. What does that sanity—and a sane world—look like? If truly understood, it manifests as a relaxed, compassionate, and ethical state of being. It is courageous, and it is genuinely creative. This program is an in-depth exploration of the foursquare discipline that supports that innate sanity, thus bringing out the best in human beings.
Meditation is not an exclusive activity that involves forgetting this world and getting into something else. By meditating, we are dealing with the very mind that devised our eyeglasses and put the lenses in the rims. — Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Grounded in the practice of sitting meditation, mindfulness of body, feelings, mind, and environment realigns us with our inherent sanity, with the sanity of the world we live in, and with the nobility of human life, in the truest sense of the word noble: “the best of the best.”
Please join us for a weekend of meditation, contemplative exercises, discussion, and individual instruction.
This program is open to all.
Friday evening: 6:30 – 8:00pm
