    Make Me One With Everything-
    Buddhist Meditations to Awaken from the Illusion of Separation

    Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Wilmington

    Wilmington, NC 28403

    Sunday, September 25th, 2016     1:00-5:00 PM 
    (Doors will open @12:30pm)

    In these disconnected, plugged-in yet tuned-out times, this unity-yoga of converge-itation, inter-meditative interbeing-- which Lama Surya Das calls co-meditation, or inter-meditation—The We Meditation, or We-ditation (not Me-ditation) is a simple joyful path to see through the illusion of separation and experience meaningful connectedness and the renowned one-taste of tantric Mahamudra and Dzogchen, the Natural Great Perfection.

    Lama Surya will lead us in practical inter-meditations and tantric exercises, opening portals to oneness in nature, with others, with our higher deepest power, and beyond notions such as distraction and concentration or the conceptual separation between the sacred and the mundane. This event is appropriate for those new to spiritual exploration as well as seasoned practitioners.

    DZOGCHEN CENTER WINTER MEDITATION RETREAT
    with LAMA SURYA DAS

    View, Meditation and Action of the Natural Great Perfection

     

    We are all Buddhas by nature--we only have to awaken and recognize who we are and how we fit perfectly in this world. This is the teaching of the innate Great Perfection--Dzogchen. Introducing us to this natural wisdom and compassion is the life-work of Lama Surya Das. For the annual Winter Dzogchen Meditation Retreat, he will teach the View, Meditation and Action of the Great Perfection: timeless and inspiring heart-essence instructions passed down in this contemplative tradition for many centuries.

    We invite you to join Dzogchen Lineage Holder Lama Surya Das for a week of awakening to the joy of naturally-arising timeless awareness. Lama Surya will teach throughout the week and offer lively Q&A sessions.  In addition to guided and silent meditations, dharma talks, heart-opening chanting and private interviews, this retreat will also feature optional and uplifting Tibetan Energy Yoga each morning.


    Outside of the teaching hall, the precious gift of Noble Silence is observed, allowing us the peace and spaciousness to explore the mind, as well as to rest and retreat from the busyness of everyday life & chatter.

    In addition to formal sessions, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings on the banks of the mighty Hudson River. 

    • Registration fees are inclusive of accommodation and delicious vegetarian meals for this eight-day retreat. 
    • Registration does not include compensation for the teacher, which will be accepted in the traditional form of dana (voluntary donation) in honor of the teachings.
