LEARN A DANCE OF MOVEMENT IN CONTEMPLATION
The Dance of the Vajra is a method of movement in contemplation.
The difference between meditation and contemplation methods is that when
we meditate we concentrate and apply the mind. Contemplation means that
the mind does not concentrate on anything, but is observant to the train
of thoughts and conditions arising in relation to our three existences,
without modifying or judging them to be correct or incorrect.
The Dance of the Vajra is introduced by the respected Dzogchen master and
Buddhist scholar, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu who is a unique figure in the
contemporary spiritual world.
Please see more information: http://vajradance.net/
The Vajra Dance is performed on a mandala that represents the
the internal dimension of each individual and the external dimension in
which we live. It is an important method using sound and movement for
our three existences body, energy, and mind - and is also a very effective
for restoring the natural condition of our energy and harmonizing our
As such, it can be approached with due awareness and respect, by all
people who are
sincerely interested and wish to receive it's benefits.
In this weekend's two short sessions we will concentrate on learning or
refreshing, entering further into our practice of the Vajra Dance of the
Three Vajras. This course is suitable for those completely new to the
Dance and those who have already been studying and practicing the Dance.
