Unifying Mindfulness with Bodhicitta
Friday, April 5th: 7-9 pm
Teaching, explanations and meditations on how mindfulness-attentiveness can be merged with relative and transcendent compassion (Bodhicitta). Liberating the mind requires compassion for oneself and all other beings, and increasing our capacity and strength of body, speech and mind.
Discovering Pristine Awareness (Mahamudra)
Saturday and Sunday, April 6th & 7th: 9:30-11 am & 2:30-4:30 pm
Pristine, Naked Awareness or Mahamudra is a term for our mind’s innate nature. It also describes the meditation of unbinding and non-fabrication. Mahamudra, or 'great seal’ is the view of all experience as it is—emptiness as total awakeness and compassion.
Empowerment and Meditations of Namgyal
Monday, April 8th 7-9 pm
This extraordinary three-part yoga was revealed in 1974 by the Ven. Karma Namgyal Rinpoche—Lama Mark’s principle teacher—while teaching in Peru. In Tibetan, Namgyal means victorious. The evening offers an introduction and profound meditations whereby one opens up to the complete victory of Enlightenment. We will finish with a community feast (Tsog).
$20 + dana per class for casual attendance or $80 + dana for the full course.
Set fee covers expenses for hosting Lama Mark but the Lama gives his time & wisdom freely. Please give dana/donation/koha for Lama Mark as generously as you are able.
Teachings open to all. Registration and prepayment requested. Full attendance is encouraged. Cost should not be a barrier to anyone receiving these teachings, so please get in touch if you are unable to afford the fee.
Venue: Nelson Buddhist Centre, Nile St
