Special Meditation Practice Event
Mahamudra (Great Seal) tradition originated in India but comes to us from Tibetan Buddhism. The Mahamudra is the wisdom of emptiness. It is one of the most powerful of ancient wisdom traditions and is known for its simplicity.
Many meditation practitioners tend to be nontraditional. Thus, the spiritual journey is more about being open to the world than belonging to a club or denomination. Mahamudra comes from a legitimate lineage tradition but in the Western context it is practiced without the trappings of institutional Buddhism.
This session will be a “Compassion Meditation” in the Mahamudra style. Participants are invited to bring a yoga mat for this session, as the practice begins with participants lying down. Chairs will be available for the second part of the practice. Participants may bring a meditation cushion, if they choose.
Disciplined meditation leads to a changed consciousness and a transformation known as awakening. Meditation practice helps put us in touch with being grounded in basic goodness. This spiritual journey takes us to an increasing sense of openness and freedom with fewer reactive tendencies. This leads us to have an increased attitude of compassion for others.
In meditation we learn to wait with compassion and patience until we are graced by love with a deeper realization of oneness with the groundless ground of being.
