We all want to experience bliss, which by the dictionary definition is "pure happiness." When our mind is free from negativity and distraction, peace of mind and a purer form of happiness naturally arise from within. This is an initial experience of bliss that is available to us all. Secret Mantra, or Buddha’s Tantra teachings, are often misunderstood, but when practiced correctly they quickly unlock a vast potential for completely pure happiness and bliss. Through understanding the functionality of the mind, the purpose of an empowerment, and special meditations we can integrate the Secret Mantra teachings into our meditations and our life thereby realizing our highest human potential.
This class will introduce the spiritual technology of Tantra and offer an introduction to the Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability Day Retreat on the following Saturday.
