Accessing Awakened Awareness through Unconditional Love and Compassion

July 11, 2020

Accessing Awakened Awareness through Unconditional Love and Compassion

Teacher(s): Lama John Makransky

This program will explore ways of accessing and settling into our innate awakened awareness through practices adapted from Tibetan Buddhism. By participating in an empowering field of loving, spiritual connection, we can become increasingly receptive to the unconditioned openness, wisdom and compassionate energy of our buddha nature. Yet parts of us, often unconsciously, may prevent us from becoming more fully receptive to such qualities of awakening. This is true even for long-time practitioners. To address that, we will focus on ways that the healing powers of our buddha nature can help realign all parts of ourselves with that nature. Then our innate awareness can increasingly manifest of itself, unleashing powers of discernment and creative responsiveness for action, while empowering all other practices of awakening. This retreat is both for practitioners who identify as Buddhists and for people of all faiths and backgrounds who seek an accessible way to cultivate unconditional powers of love, compassion, and discernment for action. Guided meditations, explanation of key principles, and group discussion will clarify and empower our collective practice.
