Special Guest Speaker:

Lama Jinpa

Topic: Sacred Daily Living-or Mind Made Easy

The teachings of the Buddha have created a highly technical and extensive understanding of the human condition and the human mind.
But how do we apply these truths to our daily lives?
What is our real identity, that straddles these two worlds of spirit and matter?
How can we change our experience, moment to moment, and deal with the incredible complexity of our feelings, thoughts, material situation, relationships, struggles, shortcomings, aspirations and fears?
Lama Jinpa will teach a series of short meditations that can bring us a direct understanding about who we are as people, and as spiritual beings.

Lama Jinpa
Lama Jigmé Jinpa (Dr Asa Hersh) is an ordained Ngakpa (white-robed Tantric Practitioner) of both the Kagyu and Nyingmapa lineages. He first took refuge with His Holiness the 16th Karmapa in 1980. In the same year, he met Kalu Rinpoche while on a pilgrimage to India, which eventually led to his undertaking the traditional lama training-the 3-year 3-month meditation retreat-from 1986-89. Over the years he has journeyed to India and Nepal 19 times, studying with great masters such as Dilgo Khyentse and Kunzang Dechen Lingpa. Lama Jinpa’s specialty is the practice of Chöd and his goal as a teacher and writer is to make these precious teachings accessible to Westerners. Having practiced as a healer for three decades, Lama Jinpa is a founding director and main teacher of the School of Tibetan Healing Chöd, providing a dynamic approach that combines the best of Western teaching methods and audiovisuals with the powerful blessing stream and energy of the authentic Eastern tradition. Currently he is completing Tibetan Chöd: Cutting Through to Freedom for Snow Lion Publications. Www.tibetancho.com
