has studied the “pointing-out” style of meditation with Daniel Brown since 1995. He leads weeklong retreats and an ongoing meditation study group in Marin County, Calif., and created an online user support group for meditators.
This workshop presents an integrative approach to the practice of Mahamudra meditation, as developed by Daniel Brown. It is designed for everyone—those new to meditation and experienced meditators. The course begins with an emphasis on intensive concentration meditation according to the Indo-Tibetan Nine States of Mental Calming/Staying, followed by an introduction to classic Tibetan emptiness meditation. A balance of mental stabilization and emptiness practices serves as a foundation for the “extraordinary” or essence meditation practices.
