Through the Six Lokas
April 4 – May 23, 2015
At one time or another each of us suffer strong emotions that throw us off balance, cause us to act in ways that we later regret, and make us lose touch with our true nature. Centuries ago the masters of the Bön lineage developed the meditations of the Six Lokas specifically to remedy this situation, to help us live our lives in a balanced and relaxed way.
The meditations focus on the root causes of our suffering: anger, desire, greed, ignorance, jealousy, pride and laziness. Through each meditation we examine our habitual patterns so that we may recognize them, then through the enlightened energy of the Buddhas to purify and transform us so that we and all other beings might not continue to suffer in this way. The practices have a deep healing and transformative power, and are traditionally practiced at length as a preliminary to dzogchen contemplation.

“This course made me realize that the Five Elements practices are an incredible antidote to the stress, anxiety, and disconnection that are so prevalent in modern life. The practices helped enormously to make me more aware of and in harmony with the natural world surrounding me and in balance with my own inner world. I reached some profound insights into certain issues I have, and the practices are truly healing.” — JB, Colorado
