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

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…

James Low Teaching retreat: Refuge and the Open Heart The Buddhist teaching points out that we are all refugees, wandering in search of our true home, our buddha potential.

James Low Clarity and equanimity in a time of provocation. Dzogchen summer retreat. The movement of our minds often leads to disturbance in the environment around us and likewise the disturbance in our environment provokes thoughts, feelings and many hopes and fears.

We will look at how a Buddhist…
