FREE EVENT: TANTRA MAHAMUDRA: THE UNION OF GREAT BLISS & EMPTINESS
Date: April 19, 2017
Time: 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Location: Ontogony Centre, 2667 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC
Facilitator: Dr. Carlos de León
Join Dr. Carlos de León to explore the profound teachings of Mahamudra whose underlying principle is that the divinity of Buddhahood is omnipresent, and the quickest way to realize this truth is to discover it within one’s body-mind complex. Mahamudra Tantra is defined as a mind of fully qualified clear light that experiences great bliss and realizes emptiness directly. The meditations of Mahamudra Tantra are designed to transform the personal body and mind into a Buddha’s Form Body and Truth Body, or Dharmakaya; giving rise to an state of ineffable meaning.
At an important level, the Life That We Want has its roots in personal permission. Given who we believe we are, we rarely allow ourselves “more” than we believe we deserve. Ontogony®, whose mission includes the exploration of our “true nature”, invites you to an evening to look at some practical ways you might expand your own permission to live even more of your dreams.
The evening introduces concepts and processes for you to practice on your own, and provides a grounding for those who want to go deeper with the Body, Soul & Business Groups that start this spring and continue next fall.
Join Renate Geier at the Ontogony Centre for an introduction to the practice of Chi Kung Meditation. The ultimate aim of all inner Taoist practices is the alchemical transformation of the body, mind, and spirit, leading to union with the Tao. Feeling the energy of your body makes it possible for you to understand the energy of your thoughts and emotions, and this leads to comprehending the energy of the spirit. From here it is possible to fully understand the energy of meditation or emptiness, and through emptiness it is possible to become one with the Tao.
