Embodying Stillness, a weekend of Buddhist Meditation and Yoga
Khandro Kunzang will lead a weekend teaching and practice on the essential Buddhist methods of Shamatha and Vipasyana meditation, which forms the cornerstone of all Buddhist practice. In addition, she will incorporate methods from Buddhist yoga practices known as Lu Jong, to bring experience directly into the body, forming a well-rounded and grounded practice routine. We will also learn about the mind’s nature and it’s connection with the subtle body – what is the mind? How does it work? and most importantly, how does the mind become liberated from our deeply ingrained habit that keep us in patterns of suffering? The class will begin on Friday evening (give exact times), and continue all day Saturday and Sunday. It will be balanced with lecture on theory and history with many practice and meditation sessions. The class is suitable for anyone who wants to develop a serious meditation practice. Experienced meditators will also benefit from the in-depth discussions and emphasis on a more body-oriented experience. You will learn enough theory and variety of methods to get your personal practice off the ground. Please bring comfortable cushions for floor sitting, and for yoga postures. We will alternate from floor sitting to chair sitting, and exercises while lying, sitting and standing. It is recommended to watch the You Tube video of the LuJong teachings that were recorded at Ganden Shedrub Ling, in 2017 (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XME91rmAO5A), as we will be drawing on some of these exercises.
