“There’s no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness”
– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Transform Your Life.
Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. Meditating on emptiness gives rise to an inner experience of freedom and flexibility through with which we can solve all our problems and vastly increase our ability to help others. That said, the meditation on emptiness is subtle and we need to learn how to do it correctly. In this half-day course Kadam Morten will explain the meditation on emptiness in a way that helps us avoid some of the common misconceptions. He will then guide the meditation, allowing us to move from an understanding of emptiness in our head to an experience of liberation deep in our heart.
*It is recommended that you attend the course in its entirety. Per-session registration is not available online, but walk-ins are welcome for those who cannot attend both sessions (sessions are $15 each)
