Moon Day Meditation
Nov 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

In the Wisdom Traditions, Autumn is the time of year known for the Harvest and going inward. On Sept 21st (Autumn Equinox) the sunlight and starlight become balanced and we creep slowly into the darker months.

As the light shifts from bright ‘yang’ to a gentle ‘yin,’ we are invited to harvest and celebrate what we have accomplished in the growing season (aka Spring and Summer) and compost the inner soil with Soulful Guidance and Rest.

Specifically, the time between Halloween and Winter Solstice is the darkest time of year and is referred to as “Womb Time.” All things that eventually burst into life start in this dark incubation space…the seeds, babies, and even inspirations come from the ‘dark’ subconscious/astral space.

In this weekly Moon-day Meditation Series we will take the gracious opportunity to nurture our deep wisdom, slow down, and learn about the hidden aspects of Consciousness.

As we ‘tune in’ to different brain waves and alter our consciousness, we open to ‘more’ of who we are beyond the density of physical manifestation. This often leads to increased feelings of wellbeing, stress reduction, elevated intuition, psychic awareness, and peaceful Self Ownership.

Each Monday will be dedicated to a different style of guided meditation and mindfulness discussion… No previous meditation experience necessary.

Meditations we will explore include:  

  • Connecting with the Inner Sanctuary/Spirit Animals
  • Connecting with the Inner Partner
  • Connecting with Transitioned Ancestors
  • Accessing Higher States of Consciousness
  • Experiencing Your Spiritual Higher Self/Angelic Guide
  • Finding Treasures in the Shadow Mind

Guided meditation with…

  • Silent Meditations with Breath work
  • Movement Meditations
  • Dynamic Meditations

Integrative Yoga for Healing & Alignment
Nov 20 @ 8:30 am – 9:45 am

Yoga is an ancient Indian healing tradition that utilizes a gently flowing integration of postures and breath, with an emphasis on accessing a calm and empowered body, mind, and heart.

This practice consists of stretching and strengthening joints, muscles, and tissues, as well as an exploration of breathing, relaxation, and mindfulness techniques.

Integrated Yoga for Healing and Alignment takes a classical approach–we move at a gentle, mindful pace with emphasis on breath with the intention of facilitating awareness, healing, and alignment.

Classes are appropriate for all levels of experience and can be modified for those with physical considerations.

Please bring a mat, as well as any other props that are beneficial for your practice. Some mats and props are also available for use at the center.

Zen Meditation
Nov 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DESCRIPTION

For people interested in finding a lay (non-monastic) community, we offer the opportunity to practice with experienced meditation practitioners.

Our primary practice is zazen, or Zen meditation. Zazen is the heart of Zen practice and is at the same time the full expression of our inherent enlightenment as well as the means of uncovering it.

Zazen can take place in stillness (sitting meditation) and in activities such as walking meditation and work practice. Therefore, we encourage a quiet, meditative atmosphere and use many traditional Zen forms to help us in that regard.

FORMAT

Three 25-minute sitting rounds with walking meditation in between. Private instruction for Zen Center members.

LEVEL

Formal Zen experience required. See “Notes” below.

The format is fairly simple: a meditation sitting followed by a Dharma talk. The sitting period is 30 minutes long and Dharma talks can range from 30-45 minutes.

We have no local teacher and value the simplicity this approach offers. Membership is the highest rank any of us achieve at TIMS.

Recorded Dharma talks are given by Gil Fronsdal or Andrea Fella of the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California.

Lu Jong: Tibetan Healing Yoga
Nov 25 @ 8:00 am – 9:15 am

DESCRIPTION

The Lu Jong practice is a series of body movements that developed more than 8000 years ago in Tibet. Lu Jong originates in the Buddhist Tantrayana and Bön traditions, and is based in Tibetan Medicine. Through the combination of position, movement and breath, Lu Jong opens the channels in the body and mobilizes misdirected energy. In this way, the practice of Lu Jong helps to cultivate balance on the physical, mental and energetic levels.

On the physical level, the movements support the healing processes and also effectively combat disease. On a mental level, Lu Jong helps us overcome negative emotions like anger and craving in order to achieve emotional balance and increase our energy. On an energetic level, Lu Jong releases blockages and opens the subtle body channels. Reestablishing the proper flow of energy has profound consequences for the health of both body and mind. And when we open our channels, we open our hearts.

This form of Lu Jong originates in the lineage of Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche, who introduced the practice of Lu Jong to the West. Prior to this, he received many years of teachings from masters of different Tibetan Buddhist schools. The result is an extensive program of physical movements, which bring our bodies and minds into balance. The practice of Lu Jong is suitable for all ages and physical abilities.

Come join John in a morning practice to open the body and mind.  You don’t need to know Lu Jong to join the class.  John will teach 21 Lu Jong movements as well as holding a regular practice.  Newcomers will receive handouts on the movements to help them with home practice. Other class material will include background material in Tibetan medicine and Tantrayana Buddhism.

Because Lu Jong originates in Tantrayana Buddhism and Bön, this morning practice is a great compliment to Lhoppön Rinpoche’s 10:00am teaching and meditation, offered at Mayu on Sunday mornings.

Mipham Shedra Tibetan Buddhist Meditation

DESCRIPTION

Join us for public meditation instruction & practice with Tibetan teacher Lhoppon Rinpoche. This is a rare opportunity to learn from Rinpoche, who studied in the monastery from 5 years of age with accomplished masters who escaped from Tibet during the cultural revolution. These masters carried the teachings at the risk of their lives. Rinpoche has dedicated his life to spreading the lineage of Truth, Love & Compassion.

Lhoppon Rinpoche says this about Meditation: “Meditation is the most simple thing to do. It is all about discovering your beautiful nature from deep silence which is a healthy, long-lasting antidote for depression, anxiety, stress and fear.”

Lucid Self
Nov 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

In a lucid dream you are aware that you are dreaming. The same is true in life.

To be aware is to not be consumed by the events around you. “Thinking” in this clear state means not getting lost in thoughts. Instead, there is awareness that thinking is happening. You are lucid.

When we are not aware, consciousness easily gets carried away by passing phenomena: the senses, images in the mind, emotions, and objects in the world. All of these things draw us in like a magnet.

Join us for these weekly classes where we explore what consciousness is, and what it is not. Greater freedom and stability of mind come with lucid awareness!
