Natural Mind Dharma CenterEmbracing the  Image: Visualization Practice in Vajrayana Buddhism
Sunday, March 31, 9:30 am — 1 pm
$30 suggested donation

• Join us for an exploration of the generating stage practice (deity yoga) in Vajrayana Buddhism. Deity practice uncovers our profound natural insight regarding appearances. Working with archetypal imagery and sound (mantra) we visualize and embody the good qualities of heart and mind through recognizing the self-display of our true nature. This stabilizes and settles the mind and helps us understand how we create our perceived reality.

Writing our Spiritual Journey:
A Guided Exploration with Ellen Waterston

$25 suggested donation

• One of the ways we can reflect on our spiritual journey is through contemplative journaling. In this workshop new and established writers are invited to join author and poet Ellen Waterston for a creative writing “sampler”.  A series of prompts will guide us as we explore our spiritual journey through various genres. We will discover our voice by experimenting with fiction and nonfiction, prose and poetry, and reflecting on examples of others’ writing distributed during the session. Bring a laptop or pad of paper and pen.
