Meditating with the Body® 2009 A five-month training for touching enlightenment with the body March 31–April 5, September 8–13 DR. REGGIE RAY brings us four decades of study and intensive meditation practice within the Tibetan tradition as well as a special gift for applying it to the unique problems, inspirations, and spiritual imperatives of modern people. He teaches within the dharma and meditation lineages of the great siddha Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. On the faculty of Naropa University since its inception, he is the author of several books including Touching Enlightenment, Indestructible Truth, and Secret of the Vajra World, as well as a new 20-disc audio publication, Your Breathing Body. DHARMA OCEAN is a non-profit foundation dedicated to preserving and extending the practicing lineages of the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and particularly the heart teachings and meditation instructions of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. DharmaOcean.org ©CHRISTINEALICINO In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the body is considered the gateway to enlightenment—to discover the body is to discover awareness and, eventually, the awakened state. Created for beginning and experienced meditators alike, this in-depth training focuses on a series of powerful “body-based awareness” exercises drawn from Tibetan Yoga. The program consists of two residential retreats and—to help deepen your practice between retreats—an extensive at-home curriculum that includes recorded lectures, guided somatic practices on CD, readings, and contact with a personal meditation instructor. Designed as a five-month program for optimum integration into your daily life, “Meditating with the Body” is a unique opportunity to study in-depth with Dr. Reggie Ray. Space is limited. Please register early.
