with Paula Chichester (Nyingje)
Saturday 19 October, 10:30 – 17:30 and Sunday 20 October 10:30 – 16:30
Mahamudra is a practice that introduces us to the absolute nature of reality. In English, it means “The Great Seal” because this absolute nature pervades and exists simultaneously with our normal everyday experience.
Mahamudra teaches us to pay attention to mind in its bare state. When this is achieved, we see through our fixed perceptions, thereby giving us flexibility, emotional freedom and the power to act “outside the box” and open our hearts in relation to what we call me, you, and our world.
This weekend will introduce us to the nature of mind, getting a taste of Mahamudra, with short talks and guided meditations interspersed with discussion and physical exercises that calm and balance the mind.
