Get Started

During this six-session series, we will spend one session on each of the four yogas of mahamudra: one-pointedness, freedom from elaborations, one taste, and nonmeditation. Our focus will be on developing our experiences of the four yogas, and will include selected readings from Moonbeams.

The other two sessions will be an experiential look at the ways we deviate from emptiness (emptiness as basic nature, seal, path and remedy) and stray in relationship to the three experiences of bliss, clarity, and nonconceptuality, as presented in Moonbeams.

As with our previous series, each session with include guided meditation, a talk, and discussion on an assigned topic of contemplation from the previous session.
