Understanding our Mind:
A Glimpse of Mahamudra
– the subtle teaching of mind practice –

Drawing from Buddhist Yogacara teachings on mind and knowing, Tarchin will point out some useful tools for experientially exploring this deep and subtle subject. First we need to recognise the field of knowing that we are. Then we need to learn the art of resting in this, while allowing fresh understanding to emerge. Such living can profoundly transform the way we, as evolving societies, live.

Queenstown Dharma Centre, NZ, September 22, – October 2, 2016
Wholeness In Action
a profoundly meaningful life of ‘natural awakening’

In the vast expanse of nature unfolding,
In faith and trust and wonderment,
We give ourselves to this suchness,
This seamless mystery of birthing and dying

Tarchin will be offering ten days of contemplative explorations into a profoundly meaningful life of natural awakening. In Buddhist terms, this is the heart core of Mahamudra and Prajnaparamitta practice. Classes will combine meditation with teaching and much opportunity for questions and individual exploration.

Topics will include:
– the basic ground of inter-dependence
– enactive mind and the growth of embodied knowing
– native skills in relationship
– “picking up and letting go”
– grief as wholesome re-integration
– ethical know-how: skills is meeting great challenge and uncertainty (sickness, old age and death)
– Our Living is Our Path of Awakening – a full and meaningful life

Residential Retreat, Nov 11 – 19
Understanding Our Mind
(merging the profound teachings of Mahamudra
with modern understandings of deep ecology)

Drawing from Buddhist Yogacara teachings on mind and knowing, along with modern understandings of deep ecology, Tarchin will point out ways for experientially exploring the deep and subtle expanse of life-unfolding that we are. First we need to recognise what might be called, the radically interdependent nature of everything. Then we need to learn the art of resting in this, while allowing fresh understanding to emerge. Such living can profoundly and compassionately transform society.

Being the fullness of the human animal that I am,
Uniquely clothed in this continuously morphing collage of sentience,
Abiding in the monastery of a world that is utterly and profoundly alive,
I wander in unpretentious openness, wonderment and service.

WHEN: Nov 11 – 19
