Sherap Chamma, Mother of Wisdom and Love
January 6 – February 3, 2017
Ligmincha Learning is pleased to announce that we will be offering a new online course introducing the practices of Sherap Chamma the Mother of Wisdom and Love, beginning January 2017, taught by Marcy Vaughn.
In many cultures the primordial female energy is seen as the origin of existence and the source of all positive qualities. Sherap Chamma, Mother of Wisdom and Love, is the source of wisdom, and her medicine is love and compassion. The teachings of Sherap Chamma comprise one of the most important tantric cycles of the ancient Bön tradition.
In this online course, participants will learn a beautiful and simple meditation practice enabling each to directly connect with the divine feminine energy. Within the support of the group, we create an environment to promote profound healing of physical, energetic, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of life. With visualization, the sound of mantra, and deep contemplation, we make a personal connection to this sacred form of the universal mother, Sherap Chamma, and are guided through this connection to our innate wisdom and the love and compassion that naturally radiate from that wisdom. Those experienced in meditation as well as those who are beginning are warmly welcomed.
Living with Joy, Dying in Peace
Free Six-Month Course
September 10, 2016 – March 15, 2017
The more attached we are to our loved ones, our possessions, and our sense of identity, the more we suffer. Realizing this truth frees us to find joy in each simple moment of life, and peace at the moment of death. This online course will help you relate to living and dying as part of a sacred continuum. Death need not be considered a failure, negative, or even a loss; rather, it is a transition toward a new beginning.
The course is open to everyone, from the young and healthy to those who are facing death, as well as their caregivers. It is based on a series of monthly free live webcasts offered by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche through Ligmincha International. Here, you will find all the recordings and other related support materials from the webcast series as they are produced, as well as a discussion forum for mutual support in your practice. Forum moderators will ensure that discussions are appropriate and supportive.
Register now for the fourth live webcast in the series, scheduled for December 10.
