There is a love, bursting out of the ground of our being, that is fully human and at the same time an expression of the deepest reality of the universe. It is immanent as our own basic state and also limitless and all encompassing. It changes us fundamentally and can heal others and our world.
In this program, we will explore the tantric bodhicitta tradition by entering into the utter depth of our own Soma. There, in a unique way, we can connect with this love, release it into our lives, and identify with it as the sole purpose of our life.
This program is suitable for all meditators, both beginning and experienced, although some familiarity with somatic meditation is helpful. For those engaging the Mahayana portion of the Dharma Ocean path, completion of this program will fulfill 100 of the 300 hours of the Bodhicitta practice requirement.
