*To pre-register for the April 26 workshop use the PayPal drop-down menu below, choose “Workshop1-Teaching w/ Practice 50 Euro”.
The workshop opens with traditional group Vajrayana prostrations, recitation of the short Refuge Prayer and short Vajradhara Mahamudra Lineage prayer, followed by a teaching lecture by Zeena relevant to this month's theme.
There's a short break after the lecture and the workshop resumes with a mantra chanting session, utilizing both struck (audible sound vibration resulting from friction between or striking of two forms of matter) and unstruck (thought vibration/the sound of the celestial realm) mantra meditation practices.
This month's mantra will be to Green Tara:
Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Svāhā / Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha
Following the mantra chanting session, participants settle into a silent seated meditation of calm-abiding and stilling of the internal monkey-chatter thoughts.
Both the mantra meditation and the meditation of calm-abiding are necessary foundations for all other forms of advanced spiritual practices. When performed together with one's teacher, these meditations build an important connection to the generations of lineage holders who have transmitted the same methods to your own teacher. For this reason, meditation together with the teacher produces stronger results than only meditating alone.
The workshop concludes with a Questions & Answers period.
*For those not living in Berlin or who cannot attend the workshops, but are interested in booking a long-distance or private in-person consultation with Zeena:
