Thursday Morning Lujong (Tibetan Yoga) and Meditation
Every Thursday from 9:30 – 11:00 am (also Tuesdays same time)
Please join Gitte and Trinity at 9:30am by Zoom
During this difficult time we are challenged to put to use the fruit of our practice, to find freedom in our immediate situation, to find spaciousness in our being and cultivate bodhichitta as never before. Lujong practice, Tibetan yoga, can help invigorate our body and mind, center and stabilize our being so we can remain calm and helpful in a crisis. Lujong has been designed over centuries to provide that strength from within, and to support physical, mental and emotional well-being. The exercises in lujong influence our entire system from the physical to the most subtle and profound.
Usually done in the intensive three-year retreat for the most advanced practitioners, we offer at Sukhasiddhi a modified form developed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche for his Western students. It is an enlivening practice, designed to uncoil the knots in our energy system and open the energy flows of the body. It is done in standing positions, so needs no special equipment or mats, and can be either vigorous or gentle, depending on the needs of your body.
Following an approximately 40 minute lujong session, we will then do a quiet meditation, with instruction and guidance as needed, to calm the mind and allow our natural deep well of serenity, love and wisdom to flourish in our hearts. minds and in our daily lives.
Gitte Dobrer and Trinity Sipila lead the class.
