Experiencing the True Nature of Reality: Advanced Mahamudra Retreat

April 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - April 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The term Mahamudra signifies full and complete realization of true nature, reality as it, as well as the path to that realization. Join Lama Palden for a five day non-residential Advanced Mahamudra retreat.

This Mahamudra retreat will combine sitting meditation with instruction, and will move through the stages of the path.  Beginning with samatha  (Tib: shiné) meditation, the mind is brought to concentration and stillness.  Then, moving into vipassana (Tib: lhatong) meditation, with a still mind the nature of our experience can be examined, explored and its true, nondual nature ultimately realized.  The actual Mahamudra practice joins the two, resting in the primordial purity of true nature, experiencing phenomena as it self liberates. As the practices lead us into deeper and deeper understanding, Lama Palden will be providing guidance through meditation instructions as well as question and answer sessions.

There will be Tibetan Yoga (Lujong) in the afternoon, to keep our bodies clear and energetic, and  songs of realization and aspiration prayers, which help to clarify Mahamudra realization in a different ways.

The retreat will be held in the Sukhasiddhi Center October 24-28, 2019 from 10am to 5pm each day, ending at 4pm on Sunday. The center is in the charming town of Fairfax, CA with many options for lunch within walking distance, or participants may being lunch to be eaten at the center.
