Sukhasiddhi Sundays

Join us Sunday mornings for a community time of Buddhist practices and teachings, shared in an accessible and approachable way for Westerners.

Our new Sunday series is an opportunity for both new and experienced practitioners to come together in community. Each Sunday we will offer three segments that offer principles of Buddhist teaching in a down-to-earth and accessible way. 

 

Lama Döndrup will guide you through the teachings in an order that makes sense, explaining how each practice is built and why its done. Her style of teaching will help you feel confident in your own understanding of ceremonies and teachings and support the natural unfolding of your innate wisdom.

 

We invite you to join us as we come together as equals, in our inclusive community, to practice and learn together.

Each Sunday is offered in three segments—choose the segments that speak to your level of experience:

 

 

Segment 1: Calm Abiding Practice

Calm Abiding is the practice of bringing the mind to stillness. Our minds are constantly processing information as we move about our daily life and we develop the habit of following and reacting to every thought as it arises and following it to the next and the next. One of the first steps on the Buddhist path from suffering to freedom is to learn that we do not need to follow every thought and to be able to move gradually into peaceful stillness. The Calm Abiding Practice is accessible to those completely new to meditation as well as seasoned practitioners.

 

 

Segment 2: Exploring the Tibetan Buddhist Teachings and Lineage

The Tibetan Buddhist teachings we follow originated with two awakened Kashmiri women, Sukhasiddhi and Niguma in the 11th century. Through meditation, teachings, and discussion, we will explore this unbroken stream of teachings that have been passed down through time in a way that has helped them remain vital, alive, and relevant to our lives today. This segment is accessible to both new and experienced practitioners.

 

 

Segment 3: Puja Ritual

The third segment is a ritual designed for seasoned practitioners. For this series, the puja will be the Chagdrukpa (Six-Arm Mahakala) Druptab. This practice helps practitioners overcome obstacles on the path to enlightenment and welcomes and liberates the most challenging emotions, energies, and forces that we experience in this life and beyond.
