Maitri Space Awareness

with Mia Bolte
March 22 / 7:00 PM - March 24 / 4:30 PM

The five wisdom energies, also known as the five Buddha families, are both the building blocks of our egos and the expression of our wisdom. This highly experiential workshop will allow us to experience these energies and explore their manifestation in in our emotions and in the phenomenal world.  The five wisdom energies work directly with the basic elements of experience: body, mind, emotions, and our surroundings. In 1971, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche created a meditation practice using five postures and five colors to evoke these energies so that we could learn to befriend emotions and ultimately develop unconditional love for ourselves and others.

Mia Bolte

In 1999 Mia begin exploring the Maitri practice while a graduate student at Naropa University in Boulder, CO.  Since then, she’s spent months in retreat settings deepening her understanding and use of the Buddha families.  She loves the application of this work, and the gentle framework it offers for seeing self and other more clearly and with greater kindness.
