Author Event with Lama Surya Das
September 1, 2015 @ 7:30 pm PDT - 9:00 pm PDT| By Donation.
Don’t miss this inspirational event with Lama Surya Das, a best selling author and dharma teacher!
Lama Surya Das will speak about his latest book Make Me One with Everything: Buddhist Meditations to Awaken from the Illusion of Separation
“If you’ve ever felt ‘at one’ with something—your beloved or your child, a forest trail or a favorite song,” shares Lama Surya Das, “then you’ve experienced inter-meditation.”
We’re used to thinking of meditation as a solitary activity that occurs solely in our own minds: by turning inward we strive to dissolve obstacles through self-inquiry and find peace through concentration, contemplation, and self-emptying. But inter-meditation (or co-meditation) is the other half of meditation: it’s inclusive and instead of getting rid of things we embrace people, feelings, and events.
Based on Tibetan Buddhism’s core insights into the inherent essence of who we are, the teachings of shared spirituality in Make Me One with Everything offer both novice and seasoned meditators a better way to live—not just on the meditation cushion or the yoga mat, but in every moment of their lives.
