Title "The Essence of Awakening: Dzogchen View, Meditation, and Action"
Description: The first class is an overview of the practical training of Dzogchen, exploring the view, meditation and action. The ground of our being is the view, the way of stabilizing the view and making it an unbroken experience is meditation, and integrating the view into our entire reality, and life, is what is meant by action. By exploring the view, meditation and action, the first class brings us closer to understanding the beauty of the Natural Great Perfection - Dzogchen, a direct portal to our highest angels, our best Self, our innate Buddha-nature.
