Natural Brilliance: Understanding your Emotions

with Irini Rockwell & Richard Bleckman
March 29 / 9:00 AM - April 1 / 6:00 PM

The Five Wisdoms are a traditional Vajrayana Buddhist teaching on how our constricting neurosis and confusing emotions can be transformed into awakened insight. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche created a practice using five postures and colours to evoke these energies so that we could learn to befriend all that we are and develop unconditional love for ourselves and others.

During this four day programme we will engage in sitting meditation, the practice of the Five Wisdoms postures and colors, process groups and have talks and discussion. As the wisdom energies work directly with the basic elements of experience, we will work experientially to bring about an embodied transformation.
