Accessing our Buddha Nature with support from psychological science

August 27 @ 5:00 pm - August 29 @ 5:00 pm

Accessing our Buddha Nature with support from psychological science

Teacher(s): Lama John Makransky, Paul Condon

This program will explore ways of accessing and settling into our innate awakened awareness through practices adapted from Tibetan Buddhism (Nyingma Dzogchen) with support from modern psychological science. 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, tend to prevent us from more fully accessing such qualities of awakening. This is true even for long-time practitioners. To address that, we will focus on ways that healing powers of our buddha nature can help harmonize all parts of ourselves with that nature, so our innate capacities for compassion and wisdom can unfold more freely. Throughout the program, we will also explore how several leading theories in current psychology can inform and empower this process of awakening—attachment theory, embodied cognition, and self-identities and emotions. No scientific background is assumed; these terms and concepts will be introduced in accessible ways.
