18 April - "The Cake is Good. Tasting our essential goodness" with Manjunaga
In the Buddhist Dzogchen teachings we are offered a view that we all have Buddha Nature or essential goodness, a potentiality that lives within us all but is often hidden to us by ignorance and confusion. We live in a culture of validation through performance and achievement. The dominant view in our culture is to work hard, transcend yourself, develop yourself and get the most out of life.
On a relative level it can be helpful to develop skills to be in the world, but how often do we get validation of ourselves, just for being us? The Buddhist Dzogchen teacher James Low says “Everything you do is icing on the cake, but the cake without icing is fine, the cake is good”. We shall have an opportunity to explore together through body based meditation practices, gentle movement and yoga nidra meditation qualities of deep relaxation and open spacious awareness.
