Awakening the Luminous Mind
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
May 31–June 2, 2013
At the core of the Dzogchen teachings is the view that all sentient beings are primordially pure and perfect, and have the potential to spontaneously manifest in a beneficial way. This capacity is within each of us, yet we often find ourselves alienated and disconnected as we rush about in our day-to-day lives. If we are willing to directly and nakedly encounter the experiences of our ordinary life, these experiences become the doorway to the realization of our nature, the inner refuge. Pain can become the path home. Join Rinpoche as we engage in meditation and reflection to honor the three doors of body, speech, and mind, and to discover the gifts of spaciousness, awareness, and warmth that bring healing and benefit to ourselves, our relationships, and the greater world.
