A Benefit for CIMC
Are our spiritual practices aligned with the true way of the Dharma? We can so easily lose our orientation toward awakening when we empower the sense-of-self to act on freedom’s behalf. However, when we use all of our practices to “thin” the sense-of-self, we stay honest to the Dharma's true intent.
This daylong program will recommend a simple reinterpretation of our practices to encourage the goal of awakening. Freedom becomes accessible when we use our practices to see through the tightly-packed and separate person which conventional reality believes us to be. We will learn how to use the meditation instructions to reverse that conditioning and see through our “self-density”.
Our time together will consist of dharma talks, silent and guided meditations, qi gong, and Q & A. This program is appropriate for new and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.
