We are happy to announce a forthcoming Lion’s Roar Foundation Weekend this November 26-27 taught online via Zoom. During this weekend, Mary Mackay-James will give the complete transmission of the formless meditation practice, which includes not only the sitting instruction, but also teachings on the view, which clarify the significance of the practice and what it means to relate to our experience in a non-egocentric way.
This weekend is self-contained and provides a complete introduction to Dzogchen view, meditation, and daily life practice. But it can also be the entrypoint to the three year Lion’s Roar programme, which guides students to a complete understanding of the formless meditation practice by examining the many complex layers of conceptuality which obstruct our ability to connect fully to the practice in all its subtlety and profundity. This programme is suitable for all as the training is not explicitly Buddhist, but only focused on giving students a complete introduction to sitting practice as a means of relating to one’s direct experience.
Registration is open now, with early bird pricing available until November 16: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-lions-roar-foundation-weekend-online-tickets-452225507667
