The Dance of the Lion is a beautiful series of meditations that train us to develop deep states of single-pointed focus by being aware of how the mind moves through various levels of concentration. We will explore new meditation techniques while watching the mind dance back and forth in the form and formless realm meditations. Once we garner the mental flexibility and strength from dancing between the levels, we then use this meditation mastery to enhance our understanding of reality.
Venerable Chunzom, will pass on this teaching on the Dance of the Lion, that was originally taught hundreds of years ago to Arya Asanga by Lord Maitreya. This class will help us use our meditation practice to realize how everything we ever see around us, and everyone we ever meet in our life, is popping out of karmic seeds in our mind.
Come join us for this 3-hour workshop to explore four out of five of Maitreya’s meditation levels and create a peaceful and happy life on and off the cushion.
