The Living Mandala Experience

Monday, February 22, 2010
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

At the start of the workshop, John Kubie, a neurobiologist and professor of cell biology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, will engage with Rinpoche in a brief discussion of what happens in our brain when we meditate.
Have you ever dreamt of stepping inside a painting? Under the guidance of Khenchen Tsewang Gyamtso Rinpoche you will be able to enter a living mandala. In this two-hour workshop the noted lama of the Nyingma tradition will induct participants by physically guiding them through a tantric meditation initiation process, retuning their minds to enable them to reach the center of the mandala. Preceded by a discussion with noted psychologist Mark Epstein.
