The "Pointing Out" Way of Tibetan Buddhist Meditation

Apr 25 - May 02 Begins this weekend
with Daniel Brown & George Protos

This workshop–designed for either novice or advanced meditators–is an integrative approach to the practice of meditation with an emphasis on intensive concentration meditation. The course begins with the Indo-Tibetan Nine States of Mental Calming/Staying, then an introduction to classic Tibetan emptiness meditation. A balance of mental stabilization and emptiness practices will serve as a foundation for the “extraordinary” or essence meditation practices.
