Tibetan traditions have unique practices for opening into stillness, and for using this as a way to experience more completely one’s own natural way of being. These practices can be experienced at multiple levels and therefore are useful for new meditators as well as experienced ones. In particular, our way of entering stillness invites participation of the senses, especially sight and sound. During our time together, easy-to-follow guided meditation will alternate with lectures and discussion. We will explore the significance of Tibetan Meditation practice through unfolding some of its Buddhist context as well as touching on contemporary science’s ways of appreciating the power of meditation. Open to everyone-All Levels.
