Selfieness: The Five Components of Individuality with Lama Christopher

Sunday Series with the Lamas at OM Laguna Beach:

Afternoon Teachings, Meditation Study/Q&A Group
"Selfieness: The Five Components of Individuality" with Lama Christopher

This weekly session explores different aspects of meditation practice from those covered in the regular Tuesday evening meetings.

As usual, we will practice in the Dzogchen tradition of Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche and Lama Surya Das. 

What makes me, me? The basic Buddhist observation, that no fixed, identifiable self can be found, is often misunderstood. In this six-part mini-series, Lamas unpack the philosophy, de-mystify millennia of yogic exploration, and tender a glimpse of freedom from the tyranny of self-preoccupation. 

The burden of self-image, with its attendant prison of isolation, we call "selfieness". It can however be left behind. Our seemingly solid sense of self, when investigated with direct awareness, is found to be a fiction: a useful construct, but a pale and inadequate reflection of our innate goodness. 

This session is a wonderful opportunity to develop our understanding and meditation practice in a group setting, and to connect with this timeless contemplative tradition in a deeper way through study and practice.

It is entirely appropriate for those new to meditation, as well as those more experienced. The teachings are offered free of charge, and are open to all. 

Donations in honor of the teachings, to contribute to this generously-offered sacred space and to help meet group expenses such as websites etc, are most welcome and much appreciated.
