Freedom, Love and Reality: Entering the Space of Possibility with Charley DeLisle

21 May

05-21-2017 to 05-21-2017 – About the Meditation Talk:

Out of confusion and ignorance we misapprehend reality and perceive ourselves in a state of painful isolation from others and our world. We view our limitations as real and we feel stuck. But our limitations are not real. The actual nature of things is emptiness, which means things do not exist outside the mind, but as mere appearances arising from our mind. Understanding this naturally frees our mind from our sense of limitation and insecurity and fills our mind with happiness. During this talk we will learn to meditate on the profound object emptiness, or ultimate truth. Gaining just a little insight into this object can profoundly change our understanding of our self, and our world.
About the Teacher:

Charley DeLisle has been studying and practicing Kadam Dharma since 1996. He began teaching in 1998 in Santa Barbara. Since that time he has completed a number of meditation retreats, including a 3 month silent retreat at Tharpaland International Retreat Center in Scotland. Charley enjoys sharing the practical nature of Dharma, and how meditation can help solve our daily problems.

Charley DeLisle will be teaching directly in reference to Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book ?The New Eight Steps to Happiness
