Maitri: Five Wisdoms Energy Practice with Giovannina Jobson

Giovannina Jobson

April 1–3, 2011

Tuition $150 + 2 nights

Developed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of Shambhala International and Naropa University, Maitri practice is based on the principles of Tibetan tantra. Each of the five energies emphasizes a particular aspect of our fundamental energies in both their confused and enlightened aspects. The focus of the practice is to discover unconditional friendliness and love toward oneself and by extension, increasing one’s capability of compassion and equanimity toward others. This discovery becomes a basis for living one’s life more fully, skillfully understanding and relating to others, and establishing a healthy relationship to one’s work, family and organizations. Discover what is truly alive within you. Connect with your basic emotional energies and transform their power into joy and creativity.

A $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor.

Giovannina Jobson is a senior student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and experienced maitri instructor. She is a Buddhist minister (upadhyaya) and teaches Buddhism, contemplative arts and spirituality at Naropa University.
