The way of natural release

It is a dizzying paradox to recognize that any path-worthy effort to liberate oneself is as necessary as it is futile. Without exerting the effort to awaken, old habits of complacency and inertia remain uncontested and this precious human life passes quickly in an anxious daze. Exerting the effort to calm our twitchy minds, clear our blocked channels, and awaken from the IMG_2520mind trance of samsara, we may be fortune enough to find ourselves on a path with heart. But in order to realize the unconditioned, luminous presence to which the Buddha awakened, it is necessary to release on meditative projects that seek a future realization. In simply being present, neither seeking nor distracted, we find ourselves at ease in the effortless wakefulness of our true nature.

Individual practices of dzogchen and group contemplative dialogues inspired by Radiant Mind will intertwine throughout the day.
