Befriending the World:
Loving Yourself, Loving the World”
Love the world by first loving and accepting yourself-these are timeless teachings that are also psychologically astute. Yet genuine self-acceptance can be elusive; relationships are frequently marred by projections about self and other. Helping us to recognize our own and others’ Buddha-full nature is the heart-essence teaching of Dzogchen, the Great Natural Perfection tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Introducing this naturally inherent wisdom and compassion with positivity and joy, is the life-work of Lama Surya Das.

“Make Me One With Everything:
Seeing Through the Illusion of Separation.”
In these disconnected, plugged-in yet tuned out times, this unity-yoga of converge-itation, inter-meditative interbeing –which Lama Surya Das calls co-meditation – The We Meditation, or We-ditation (not Me-ditation) is a simple joyful path to see thru the illusion of separation and experience meaningful connectedness and the renowned one-taste of tantric Mahamudra and Dzogchen, the Natural Great Perfection. Lama Surya will lead us in practical inter-meditations and tantric exercises, opening portals to oneness in nature, with others, with our higher deepest power, and beyond notions such as distraction and concentration or the conceptual separation between the sacred and the mundane. This event is appropriate for those new to spiritual exploration as well as seasoned practitioners.
