Dancing with Hope and Fear Part 4: Complete Openness and Crazy Wisdom with Frank Berliner

Frank Berliner

April 6–8, 2012

Tuition $150 + 2 nights

In the Tibetan teachings of Maha Ati or the Great Perfection, it is taught that there are three levels of practicing with our hope and fear: abandoning the habit of identifying with them; transforming them into fearless awareness by working directly with their energy; or seeing them as naturally free and pure from the very beginning.
In this final weekend of Warrior Dharma, we examine the third and ultimate level of meditative practice: seeing the pure nature. We will do so through the study and practice of two of Chogyam Trungpa’s most profound texts: the Sadhana of Mahamudra, and the Three Aspects of Maha Ati.
These are the core issues we will explore in this weekend of lectures, discussion, guided meditation, poetry, and personal interviews with Mr. Berliner.

Frank Berliner is an associate professor of Contemplative Psychology at Naropa University. As a close student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, he has studied and practiced meditation since 1974. Over a 12-year period, Frank served as national director of Shambhala Training, and executive director and resident teacher of the Berkeley Shambhala Meditation Center. Frank is also a psychotherapist and life coach in Boulder, Colorado. His memoir of his experiences with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, “Falling in Love with a Buddha,” will be published this Spring.
