Into the Mirror is a guidebook for a Mahayana journey to shunyata—the empty, luminous nature of reality itself. This profound insight opens the door to freedom. In this program we will investigate ways to overcome the materialism and ignorance that shroud shunyata, using powerful methods from Mahayana Buddhism and various contemporary approaches.
In this weekend program, we will explore techniques for cutting the karmic chain reactions that bind us in samsara. We will look into contemporary thinking that challenges our materialistic assumptions. We will investigate techniques for deconstructing mental fabrications and elaborations. Finally, we will learn how recognizing the basic ground of being dissolves the foundations of duality.
“This is the universal ground of everything: it is the basis of freedom and also the basis of confusion.”
—Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, The Sadhana of Mahamudra
