This workshop will be largely experiential with guided meditations and inquiry. Tibetan Buddhist teachings on the qualities on our innate awakened nature, our “Buddha nature,” the union of wisdom and love, pure being, will also be given. The guided meditations will help students to access this for their own and others’ benefit.Read More
Inquiry will be done in triads or alone with journaling in order to deepen experience and to clear issues that block realization of who you truly are.
In conjunction with the rest of your Rythmia experience, this will be a powerful opening for people new to this transmission, and for others will be a chance to deepen into your true nature.
