We now have the opportunity to start the forthcoming year 2023 with the profound teachings of the Lion’s Roar Foundation Weekend. We’re happy to announce that registration is currently open for this event which will be taught by Kathy Nairne, one of Rigdzin Shikpo’s earliest students.
The Lion’s Roar is a training programme in formless meditation which directly introduces students to the way of Maha Ati, considered to be the highest Buddhist teachings. During this weekend, Kathy Nairne will give the complete transmission of the meditation practice, which includes the instructions for sitting meditation, as well as 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 practice. But it can also be the entry point 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 that obstruct our ability to connect fully to the practice in all its subtlety and profundity.
Registration is on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-lions-roar-foundation-weekend-online-tickets-468830002157. Early bird pricing is available until December 31st!
