INTIMATE STUDY CONTAINERS / CONSOLIDATING AND INTEGRATING TEACHINGS / RIGHT WHERE WE ARE: ONLINE COURSES
‘We must continue to be open in the face of great opposition. No-one is encouraging us to be open but still we must peel away the layers of the heart.’ TRUNGPA
Timeless heart teachings
This course is suited for those wishing to engage in meditation practice and study to deepen compassion for self and others. Participants will be supported to cultivate a daily practice and their own unique expression of these timeless heart teachings that offer nourishment in our modern context. Together we will practice un- gripping at the edge – we will train opening into and through irritation, numbness, limiting views, judgments, offences and grief – all the inner terrain.
The heart, like the morning sun, has the power to rise through periods of aridness.
These practices raise the ‘water-mark’ of our capacity to feel
for ourselves, each-other and the surrounding environment. This can widen our sense of belonging and affect the way we relate with the world.
Teachings will be drawn from the ‘development of the heart’ practices expressed in the Insight tradition and the Maha-yana Tibetan tradition, as well as contemporary teachers and poets, Jess’s direct experience and trial and error as a contemporary female practitioner and teacher. Beginners and experienced practitioners welcome.
Format: the opening and closing events can be attended live in Melbourne or online. The course includes weekly talks, practices, readings and group discussion forums delivered online as well as options to attend face to face study groups in your local area. Mid-way through there is also a Q & A via livestream. An optional one to one mentoring session is also available.
