Bar-ché Dorje will explore the subject of 'Natural Heroism' in an easygoing, to the point kind of manner. Feeling ourselves a mind warrior in all our life circumstances is a quality that we all need on our path of liberation.
Along with the teachings on natural heroism, Bar-ché Dorje will also be introducing Ying'khor. Although these are rather subtle yogic exercises, they are suitable for all kinds of people, and have a number of benefits like improving health.
Ying’khor is connected with the Dzogchen long-dé method of viewing the channels – and effectuating their potential by experientially navigating them through subtle movement and visualisation of essential-light-spheres synchronised with breath, whilst maintaining the 4 brDa. Sometimes sound is also employed in terms of vocalising seed-syllables.
Visualisation relates to the nature of Mind. Breath, or sound, relates to nondual energy. Physical movement relates to the vajra body. The alignment of these three is the symbol—brDa—of the non-separateness of the three.
During the weekend, Bar-ché Dorje will also offer the tantric empowerment of Ling Gésar or Thangtong Gyalpo. The lung of the mantra and melody will also be given.
"Being a practitioner is: having the courage to face yourself at all times; exploring the open space of the unknown with eyes wide open; allowing fear to be an ornament of the journey into vastness; not compromising; being strong in view and promise; forgetting yourself and whatever defines you; and, being beneficial to everyone, everything, and everywhere. Being a Buddhist is to cultivate warrior mind. Without warrior mind you will never look further and never discover reality. This event will show you how to deal with life with your eyes wide open.”
