Cutting through to the Root: Meditations & teachings on the Illusions that Cause Suffering States.

Lama Mark will guide us to understand the nature of Suffering, Emptiness & Compassion through explanatory teachings & introducing us to profound meditations. He will draw on instructions from classic Buddhist Insight traditions & the 12 Examples of Illusion from ancient Indian Mahayana sources. Through the days Lama Mark will weave explanations from these ancient teachings with modern discoveries from the fields of neuroscience, physics, biology & cognitive psychology. Experiencing & understanding Illusion & Emptiness is the most loving & compassionate thing one can do! This is a great opportunity to ask questions & be guided practically into tasting razor sharp awareness with kindness & humour.
