Using time-honored ancient Buddhist teachings and meditation practices to help you meet your shadow and awaken compassion, wisdom and fearlessness.
The shadow is all that is hidden from us, all that is buried in the unconscious. In this program, we will immerse ourselves in ancient Buddhist teachings and the practice of shamatha meditation - an ancient practice of having a direct experience of ourselves with no distraction. Shamatha meditation is a practice that allows the unconscious mind to communicate to the conscious mind. We will directly see, sense, and feel our shadow! In the process we will become more grounded, mentally strong, stable and clear. We will recover lost parts of our true self, transmute our wounds into wisdom, and reclaim our inherent powers of intuition, creativity and fearlessness.
Each workshop includes dharma talks, meditation instruction and discussion.
