with Rob Preece
Monday, February 26
7:00pm – 9:00pm
Join us for this special teaching on the profound Mahamudra meditation. Relax into the emptiness, luminosity and awareness of our ever-present nature of the Buddha mind. Take a break from the mind that is most often caught up in the entanglement of ordinary, conceptual projections.
The meaning of Mahamudra is found in its name. Maha means “great” and mudra means “symbol” or “seal.” Because it covers the totality of our experience, the Great Symbol is known as the all-encompassing reality from which there is no escape or exception
