Mudra Space Awareness Practice
Mudra is a physical training designed by Trungpa Rinpoche as a practice for working skillfully with space and with other people. We can experience reality fully and precisely only when we meet space on its own terms.
Mudra exercises are designed so that Western students, living under the pressures of performance and every day life, can meet these challenges with body, speech and mind. Mudra training will heighten sensitivity to the interplay of form and space and develop  awareness and  skills of communication.

Maitri Space Awareness Practice
This practice, also developed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, is based on the traditional Buddhist teachings of the five buddha families and other elements of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. In this practice we look more closely into the patterns of energy arising in space, both in their sane and confused ways.

Bringing both practices together in one program gives us the opportunity to see the intermingling quality of energy and space, how this manifests in our daily life and how to see this continuum with appreciation and clarity.
