Longchen Open is dedicated to teaching the fundamental practice of the Longchen Foundation, commonly referred to as formless meditation. We could call this a beginners’ practice, but it is only for beginners in the sense that we start with it. In fact this is a practice we never abandon. When we reach the highest level, which might have a high-flown name like the Great Perfection, we will find ourselves doing the same meditation.
Anyone looking to make or deepen a connection to the Longchen Foundation and the practice of formless meditation can attend this online open meditation group. This group meets on Zoom on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8pm UK time.
The hour starts with a Longchen instructor giving simple instruction on formless meditation, followed by roughly 20 to 30 minutes of formless meditation practice. The final 15 or 20 minutes are an opportunity for open discussion about meditation or other practice topics. This group is ideal both for those who are new to the practice of formless meditation and also for those wishing to reconnect to this foundational practice.
If you would like to attend, or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link. We will use the same Zoom link for each session, so once you have it you won’t need to ask again.
