Fourth Class - Mandala Practice:  July 14, 9:30-2:00pm

Please note the extended time for this particular class:  The morning will include an overview of the background of the practice and guided meditations to introduce the outer, inner, and secret view of mandala offering. An afternoon session has been added to allow for detailed practical instructions. This extra time is needed since the mandala offering is more elaborate than the other Ngondro practices.

LUNCH - brown bag or eat at nearby restaurant
1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Mining the Mani

Thursday, September 13 (evening) to
Tuesday, September 18 (morning)

The meditation on Chenrezi—the bodhisattva of compassion—is a Vajranana technique through which we draw forth our inherent awakening. We do so by exchanging identification with ordinary body, speech, and mind with the with awakened body, speech, and mind of Chenrezi. The practice consists of imagining ourselves in an enlightened form, reciting the six-syllable mantra of Chenrezi, and training in various samadhis. Once we have familiarized ourselves with awakened being through these conceptually-supported techniques, we let go of these supports and, ideally, rest in awakened mind itself, free of all elaboration.

This retreat will include guided meditation sessions to throughly introduce the key components of Chenrezi meditation to newcomers, allowing them to gain firm understanding of and confidence in the practice. For those already familiar with it, we will explore methods to develop shamatha, vipashyana, loving-kindness, compassion, tonglen (sending and taking) and so forth within this meditation, thus learning tools to deepen and expand our experience.
