Meditation for an ordinary person

In this evening talk about meditation Lama Mé-sèl Gyalmo will give direct introduction to the silent sitting method of shi-nè. The emphasis of practising in this way is to integrate the experiential insights of meditation with daily life. Lama Mé-sèl explains the practice in a warm, humoristic and easily accessible manner. There will be a session of meditation included in the event. No previous experience is needed and you can ask questions during the teachings.

Saturday and Sunday:
Joy of Living (The Song of the Owl Headed Dakini)

The result of meditation practice in your life is that you will be less ruled by your emotions if and when circumstances trigger them. There will be more space within your experience enabling you to make the right choices. You will be more aligned with your wisdom mind beyond habitual responses. Buddhist teachings give answers how we can work with our emotionality. By changing ourselves we change how we see and react to the world.
In the weekend event with Lama Mé-sèl Gyalmo we continue from the basis of shi-nè meditation and start exploring the teaching of The Song of the Owl Headed Dakini. This is a method of practice that explains how to integrate the nondual essence of Buddhist practice into everyday life. The teaching contains five different precepts that aim to give an insight how we can become honorable and kind people in all situations.

No prior experience of Buddhist teachings are needed. The teaching is in English, and translation is available on request.
