"Mindfulness" means nothing without embodiment. What are we mindful of? The Buddha's 'first foundation' for mindfulness was our body. The discipline of Mudra Space Awareness challenges us to see that even highly trained meditators aren't always able to relate in a direct way with bodily experience. Instead of being mindful of our actual body, we tend towards what Chögyam Trungpa called "psychosomatic body" — where we think about bodily experiences, rather than actually feeling them. This process is one of the main ways we disconnect from ourselves and lose the innate gifts of presence and confidence.

LIVESTREAM: Chaos Is Extremely Good News: Mudra & Digital Embodiment with Dr. Craig Warren Smith, Acharya Suzann Duquette and Greg Heffron

May 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
online, United States + Google Map

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche once said: "Chaos should be regarded as extremely good news.” Through intensification and embodiment practices that engage our senses, Mudra meets the chaos of any moment and transmutes it into a clear sense of being. In this way, Mudra allows us to see fear, meet the groundlessness that is ever present, and engage both of these directly, with confidence. This presentation of Mudra Space Awareness through digital embodiment will explore key practices and themes of this group…

Mudra Presentation & Practice Series, Talk 2

January 30 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
online, United States + Google Map

The gateway to the Mudra experience is something called “intensification.” It is achieved through a series of mind/body exercises that dispel the conventional separation between tension and relaxation. Intensification provides a clue to the meaning of being “wrathful” as that term is understood in Vajrayana Buddhism.
