Announcing Longchen Open Meditation Group
The meditation that will be taught during Longchen Open is 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 formless meditation practice can now attend an hour’s on-line open meditation group. The Longchen Open group takes place on Zoom on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8pm UK time, with a Spring session beginning on January 26th.
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.
If you would like to attend, or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive the Zoom link. We are excited by this opportunity to practice together with old and new friends inspired by the vision of Rigdzin Shikpo.
