This 2-day intensive workshop course is an in-depth slow think about how to make sense of Tibetan Buddhist contemplative practices in light of our multi-millennial contemplative human heritage. The workshop presents new models and methods for the study of meditation with case examples drawn from practices of attention, imagination, and embodiment. We will explore mindfulness, open awareness, visualization, dreaming and illusion, sense-making, and remedial practices. Participants will be introduced to basic building-blocks and underlying mechanisms to work towards contemplative fluency – a practical know-how sensitive to distinct skills, contexts, and potentials.
