" . . . to be at the mercy of conflicting emotions is described in the Buddhist tantras as ‘having an insane ape on your back’. The ape demands you go one way, by raking your flanks with its spurs – whilst also demanding the exact opposite, with severe jerks to the bit in your bleeding mouth. The alternative is meditation – in which non-dual awareness allows the ape to become your best friend.’ Ngak’chang Rinpoche

Emotions become problematic when they are driven into complexity and conflict with one another through thinking. This course explores the Tantric psychology of the elements and their associated emotions, and also the Dzogchen method of liberating these emotions into the rainbow of enlightened energy. Understanding the elements and learning a better way to relate to emotions in meditation, can transform our experience of everyday life, making us both happier and more pleasant to be around.

This is an 8 week course which will also include some sessions of silent sitting meditation instruction. You do not have to attend the whole course.

Come and find out how to get that insane ape off your back and experience life as a spectrum of ecstasy!
