The 2023 Margha Program will dive into the practices of Natural Meditation. The curriculum offers a thorough distillation of traditional Himalayan Buddhist training and was developed by Lama Willa Baker. Participants will be guided and supported through a comprehensive program of meditation, study, and contemplation, which provides a framework that gently invites and opens participants to experience present fresh wakefulness, our intrinsic buddha nature. Meditation instruction in shamatha (calm abiding), vipashyana (insight), and open awareness will be offered.
(The alternate year’s program focuses on practices of Bodhicitta, in which participants access and deepen innate qualities of love and compassion for self and others, wisdom, sympathetic joy, and equanimity. Registration for 2024 opens around October 2023. Mark your calendar!)
In this Program:
You will explore your connection with innate original goodness and wisdom and the techniques of tranquility meditation that function to stabilize the mind, enabling us to rest at ease in our being while simultaneously accessing original wisdom.
