Our new offering, “Walking the Path (of Calm Abiding and Profound Insight)” is a two-year program that brings a developmental and interactive approach to the way we practice meditation.
In this, the first weekend of the program, Namchak Khen Rinpoche will get us started in the practice of Calm Abiding. The weekend will contain extensive explanations on the practice as well as group practice sessions.
You may be wondering what distinguishes this from the previous Namchak teachings on Calm Abiding and Profound Insight. Earlier, while we were working with methods of traditional Buddhist practice, we didn’t practice with them in the traditional Buddhist framework. This new program includes relying upon the Buddha as our teacher, the Dharma as our path, and the Sangha as our helpers. We will take refuge, generate bodhicitta, and end each session with dedications and aspirations. By generating a mind of renunciation, we will focus on attaining liberation and Buddhahood for the sake of all beings.
In our new Walking the Path offerings, clearly outlined practices build upon one another with prescribed timelines. Throughout the program there will be ample opportunities to have regular check-ins with Namchak Khen Rinpoche to clarify your meditation practice. Recommended and required readings will accompany the practices.
