The Heart of the matter: weekend teaching. Oxford, Dec 2018

December 1, 2018 - December 2, 2018
Talbot Hall, Lady Margaret College, Norham Gardens
Oxford, OX2 6QA United Kingdom

James Low The Heart of the Matter is the Open Mind Although we rely on our mind in every aspect of our lives, the mind itself is rarely the focus of our interest and attention. Meditation is a simple yet profound way to get to know our mind. We might well find that our mind is not what we think it is. When the mind is disregarded there is always so much to do to maintain our sense of self in the world. However,…

Berlin, Bodhicharya Deutschland e.V., Kinzigstraße 25
Berlin, 10247 Germany

James Low Opening to the space of being. When the many identities we adopt in daily life are used to sustain the illusion of an enduring real self we become mired in self deception. Our multiple identities are the radiance of awareness inseparable from the ungraspable ground of being. Other details to be confirmed.

December 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - December 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Berlin, 10247 Germany

James Low The evolution of delusion within unchanging openness. The famous dzogchen text, The Evocation of Samantabhadra, shows clearly how limitation gradually emerges within the great openness of the ground of all, which is forever free of limitation.  We will use this text to clarify the view of dzogchen which will help us to relax and release the delusion of duality and rest in primordial openness.

Dzogchen teachings. Warsaw, Jan 2019

January 26 @ 10:00 am - January 27 @ 1:00 pm

James Low Relaxation and the self-liberation of phenomena. We habitually experience objects that can be grasped along with our sense of ourselves as subjects who need to grasp at something in order to continue to exist. Struggling to remove this delusion does not help. Our practice is to relax and open and directly see how all that seems so real is in fact illusion. 2 days of teachings with breaks for meditation. Sat 10-6, Sun 9.30-1

Retreat. Eifel, April 2019

April 19 - April 22
Kamalashila Institute, Mayen-Koblenz Kirchstraße 22
Langenfeld, 56729 Germany

James Low Dependent origination as the door to emptiness. All that we know as subject and object arises in dependence on other manifestations which are also dependent, and so on in all directions for ever. This is the play of the inseparability of emptiness and the creative effulgence of awareness. We will look at the deconstructive freshness of the Heart Sutra and relate it to the view of dzogchen. The approach will be practical as we seek to uncover how…
