New Class: Awakening to Our True Nature

Four Wed eves July 13th-August 3rd, 6:30-8:00pm

This class will use Anam Thubten’s book: No Self, No Problem: Awakening to Our True Nature

Many Westerners apply our conditioned habits and beliefs to spiritual practice, attacking meditation with idealism and forceful effort as an endeavor to perfect. This approach is connected to our tendency to believe ourselves as we are unworthy of achieving peace, and to our inclination to making inner work another project of the self.

True realization involves seeing through these and other illusions so that we can wake up to and feel confident about our true nature.

We can realize the highest truth in each moment when we learn to see through the illusion of the self. Anam Thubten, in remarkably easy-to-understand language, provides teachings for doing exactly that, based on his extensive practice drawing on the wisdom of the Buddhist traditions.

Anam Thubten illuminates the path of going beyond the misconceptions of the ego to experience the reality of our true nature, which is already enlightened. He communicates with clarity, humor, and refreshing honesty, lighting the way to a life full of love, compassion, and true satisfaction.

Join this class for an exploration that encourages relaxation into a dharma journey that goes beyond beliefs and striving, and encourages here-and-now understanding and realization.

Anam Thubten’s book will be available soon at Everyone’s Books in Brattleboro or directly from Shambala Publications

Prayer Flags in AnnapurnasThe Zen master Ikkyu was once asked to write a distillation of the highest wisdom. He wrote only one word: Attention.
The visitor was displeased. “Is that all?”
So Ikkyu obliged him. Two words now.
          Attention. Attention.
