ABOUT THIS COURSE: CHÖ FOUNDATIONS

 

Is a gateway to the Buddhist Path. This course is devoted to the exploration of Vajrayana Foundations, the core of the entire Buddhist path and the basis of our most profound transformation in the practice of Vajrayana and Chö. Chö is a radical method for cutting through self-fixation and cultivating compassion and fearlessness. It was considered by previous masters to be a gem atop the palace called the Three Principal Aspects of the Path: Renunciation, Bodhicitta, and Wisdom.

Mahamudra Shamatha

A Five-Week Series led by Chöying Khandro

Free Access for Dakini's Whisper Members

THE CHÖ MAHAMUDRA SERIES

 

Consists of three major 5-week series – Mahamudra Shamatha, or resting in the nature of mind; Mahamudra Vipashyana, or clear seeing; and Mahamudra Chö, the direct blending of awareness and expanse of space. These three-part series sequentially introduce the core practices of “the Path of Liberation (Drol-Lam)” according to the Mahamudra Chö (Chö Chakgya Chenpo) tradition. Each series consists of the commentary & teachings based on the authentic source, as well as practice, contemplation and, homework. Our intimate online small group setting allowed students ample opportunity to fully participate, exchange reflections and clear any doubts which may inevitably occur in their meditation process.

 

ABOUT THIS COURSE: MAHAMUDRA SHAMATHA

 

Our first Series is devoted to the foundations and development of single-pointed concentration, i.e., cultivation of a calm, clear and focused mind, specifically focusing on the nature of mind. During this five-week series, we will learn how to develop and enhance our attention skills, how to strengthen our faculty of mindfulness, and how to bring skills developed thru meditation into our daily lives. Within Buddhism, this training is often referred to as Shamatha practice.

 

Mahamudra Shamatha is the building block for any of the advanced practices. This practice, which focuses on the nature of mind, plays such a key and foundational role in the path of freedom and awakening in the Mahamdra and Dzokchen traditions that it is called by many names - “Shamatha focusing on the conventional nature of mind,” “Settling the mind in its Natural State,” “Taking the Mind as the Path,” and “Taking Appearances and Awareness as the Path.”

 

In addition, this series will also highlight the preliminary practices which act as a foundation for Mahamudra practice along with a brief discussion of the tantra or Vajrayana level of practice.

During this series, Chöying will offer the oral transmission and commentary to the teachings of The Highway to the Conquerors: A Root Text on the Precious Geluk-Kagyu Mahamudra Tradition and its auto-commentary. Chöying received the transmission of this text from many great masters including His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

ABOUT THIS COURSE: CHÖ WHISPERED FROM THE MOUNT OF BLISS

The Ten-Week Chö Series offers an in-depth commentary on “Dedicating One’s Illusory Body as a Feast Offering,” the main chanting text of the Chö Whispered from the Mount of Bliss, the Ensa Ear-Whispered Lineage of Chö. Each week covers a specific section of practice in the text. Each session includes a one-to-one practice of chanting and drumming with Chöying. The entire course highlights the key points and teachings of Chö rituals.
 

For those who are new to Chö, this series will provide a basic understanding of the principal aspects of Chö practice which entails meditation, visualization, and ritual. For those who already practice Chö in other traditions, this will help deepen your understanding of Chö and enhance your Chö practice and spiritual practice in general.
