The nuts and bolts of Tibetan Meditation Techniques
We will explore Buddhist methods to open your heart and connect with the source of wisdom in you. Stephan Pende will introduce you to a variety of meditation techniques from the Tibetan Tradition to support the development of Self-Compassion and based on that compassion for others. This techniques can be used by everyone independent of your believe and background. The emphasis will be on cultivating a kind and open awareness, to discover a way of effortless being without pressure.
The true nature of your mind is already pure
When you look deeply into your heart you recognize that the very nature of consciousness itself is a wellspring of loving-kindness. It is said that the very quality of the deepest level of your mind is that of inexhaustible love, and it is already there. In other words, you don’t need to get it from anybody else: not from a religion, not from a teacher. It is there already, but it does get obscured. So if this is a birthright, a capacity you bring to life, then instead of emphasizing how to cultivate this wonderful quality of mind, you can shift our mindset to ask how to stop doing what you are doing to obscure it.
