Local Group: Turning Towards

Recurring event see all

Wed Mar 11 2020 @ 7:15 pm 9:00 pm

An exploration of the fundamental attitude of Longchen Buddhism: never turn away, always turn towards. In every moment we have a simple choice: we can either turn toward our experience or we can reject it and turn away. The Buddhist teachings tell us always to turn toward. Come and explore this fundamental and profound teaching with us at the Path of Freedom local group in Bristol. Each day is stand-alone so feel free to drop in. For more information email bristol@longchenfoundation.org.

From Never Turn Away:

Trungpa Rinpoche’s approach was simply to be open and to minimize the projections we make on our experience. His great saying was, “Turn towards everything.” Even if we don’t know what to do, or how to handle a situation, we just turn toward it. What comes to us might be quite painful, but it is always better to turn toward. It is a very simple choice, although it might be a painful choice sometimes. We can either turn toward or we can turn away, and Trungpa Rinpoche said you should always turn toward, and never turn away.
