Six Yogas of Naropa – Dream Yoga & Light Yoga
December 7 @ 3:00 pm - December 22 @ 1:00 pm
The Six Yogas of Naropa are one of the central practices of the Tibetan Kagyu lineage, to which Clear Sky belongs.
During these two weeks, we will be focusing on the third and fourth Yogas of Naropa: Dream Yoga and Light Yoga.
These practices form a path to freedom through the development of deep understanding into the way things and formations arise and pass away.
Meanwhile, the teachings are grounded in the deep understanding of the fundamental principles and practices of Tantra.
To do this work, each of us must leave behind all partial views and develop a complete “viewing.”
By studying the energy channels of the body, the bindhus (hormones), and the overall functioning of the energy systems, the Diamond Body emerges. A radiant energy body, the Diamond Body is no longer subject to the blocks and malformations that are the natural result of conditioned patterns.
We enJOY–and share with all beings–the radiant and blissful result: kundalini energy. This burns up the amassed undergrowth of our unwholesome patterns, resulting in the natural liberation of energy, loving kindness and compassion.
Dumo Heat Yoga and Illusory-Body Yoga were taught and practiced in 2017. Bardo Yoga and Transformation Yoga be the focus of retreat at the end of 2019.
Dāna (Generosity Based Teaching)
Doug & Catherine are teaching this meditation retreat via the ancient tradition of Dāna (generosity), an offering from them to the attendees. It is considered of supreme value to your life and thus “beyond price” so it is expected that the student will be equally generous and support the teaching and the teachers by making an offering.
While no offering is too small, also no offering is too great. The giver benefits by offering as much as they can, given the individual’s circumstances. Along with compassion, generosity is considered the root of spiritual progress and, according to the ancients, therefore the root of our success in daily life as well.
Find out more about how you can practice Dāna. We invite you to offer Dāna when you register and via the Dāna bowl available at Clear Sky.
