Traditional Buddhist practices include body, mind, arts, crafts, meditational practices; using senses and voice to stabilize and awaken the mind. We have very deep-seated and entrenched habits around how we see things. Buddhism teaches that the way to clarify our experiences is to not take everything we experience at face value. Many of our problems are produced by thinking about our experiences too much. When we do that, we may get a distorted version of whatever it is that we think has occurred. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche will offer teachings on the Buddhist philosophical and psychological perspective on dealing with our experiences in a more integrated way.

Integral Buddhism

The body and mind exist in intimate relationship and the importance of exercises such as meditation, yoga and pranayama—that help to marry mind and body—cannot be over-estimated. Learning to be in touch with our true nature requires dealing with psychological and physical issues so that we can increase the pliancy of both body and mind. We need to gain a greater understanding of ourselves in a variety of behaviors and circumstances and Rinpoche will present a number of exercises and tools for developing a more spacious and accommodating approach to both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.
