"DAKINI JOURNEY IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD
The Heart of Chö, Volume Two"
available on Amazon and DW Media Store
“What would it be like to journey with Dakini, this being whose body is completely grounded, whose mind is crystal clear with wise knowing,
whose heart is immensely vast and open like the sky, yet full of tender, fearless, and overwhelming compassion?”
This compelling journey will take you right into the heart of Dakini, the compassionate embodiment of “inner wakefulness.” Emerging from Chöying Khandro’s teachings, meditations, and dialogue with student practitioners through a period of extensive exploration of Dakini, Dakini Journey brings ancient teachings into the modern world through the lens of the five elements, our six senses, and subtle body. With her encouraging self-inquiry, we find the voice of the Dakini, or “sky-dancer,” the awakened awareness dwelling within.

Relating to Dakini in this way helps us develop an understanding of how to perceive and relate to the true nature of all phenomena."

An article by BuddhistDoor Global, based on the interview with KL, November 27, 2018
