Friday Evening, April 5, 7-9 pm: Unifying Mindfulness and Bodhicitta.
Teaching, explanations and meditations on how mindfulness-attentiveness can be merged with relative and transcendent compassion (
Bodhicitta). Liberating the mind requires compassion for oneself and all other beings, and increasing our capacity and strength of body, speech and mind. Lama Mark explains the who, why, how, when and where.

Saturday and Sunday, April 6th & 7th, 9:30-11am & 2:30-4:30 pm: Discovering Pristine Awareness (Mahamudra).
Pristine, Naked Awareness or Mahamudra is a term for our mind’s innate nature. It also describes the meditation of unbinding and non-fabrication. Mahamudra, or ‘great seal’ is the view of all experience as it is—emptiness as total awakeness and compassion. This series of teachings describes the preparations, graduated steps we take and the natural mode of mind free of all obscurations. Lama Mark Webber will be giving a reading transmission, teachings and meditations of Je Gampopa’s (11th cent.) essence text:
The Single Sufficient Path of Mahamudra. This is an elegant and direct instruction of the essence-ground of mind, the meditations, path we need to follow and the result.; the inseparable unity of wisdom and compassion.

Monday, April 8th, 7-9 pm: Empowerment and Meditations of Guru Namgyal.
This extraordinary three-part yoga was revealed in 1974 by the Ven. Karma Namgyal Rinpoche—Lama Mark’s principle teacher—while teaching in Peru. In Tibetan, Namgyal means
victorious. The evening is an introduction and profound meditations whereby one opens up to the complete victory of Enlightenment. The evening will finish with a community feast (Tsog).
