Earth is the densest and void the least dense. They are a framework for exploring the various ways we react to our experience and each element has both a reactive aspect and\, when that is transformed\, an awakened aspect. During this retreat we will explore each element providing opportunities to experience how they operate in reactive emotions\, how to allow their transformation and how they express in awakened awareness. Looking at our experience using the elements as a framework has many applications in our daily life including our relationships \nThe cost of the retreat is $595 which includes single room accommodations\, all meals\, teachings and interviews.  If you wish to participate\, please send the full amount to Dan Jorgensen\, 13118 Thistledown Court\, Auburn\, CA 95603 by March 21st.   If you have a financial hardship\, please let us know. \nIf you have not participated in a previous retreat with us\, we ask that you fill out a short retreat application.  The reason for this is to make sure this retreat is suitable for you.  If you have any questions about the retreat or need an application\, please respond to either of us by email.  Our email addresses are on our website: www.clearmountainwisdom.org. \n  \n  \n URL:https://www.clearmountainwisdom.org/event/the-spectrum-of-experience-exploring-the-energies-of-the-five-elements/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.clearmountainwisdom.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Five-Elements.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Los_Angeles:20200701T190000 DTEND;TZID=America/Los_Angeles:20200710T120000 DTSTAMP:20200328T045332 CREATED:20200202T023643Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200211T194541Z UID:322-1593630000-1594382400@www.clearmountainwisdom.org SUMMARY:The Vast Spaciousness of Natural Clarity - A Direct Awareness Practice DESCRIPTION:In the later period of Indian Buddhism\, masters living outside the established framework of the monastic system developed simple yet powerful methods of meditation practice.  These practices lead to the realization of the mind’s fundamental nature in this life and came to be known as the Direct Awareness teachings.  Beginning in the 9th century\, these teachings were transmitted to Tibet and were further refined for the next 1\,000 years. \nThe Direct Awareness Teachings which include both the Mahamudra (Great Seal) and Dzog Chen (Great Completion) teachings do not rely on the complex symbolism that characterizes many Tibetan teachings and practices.  Rather\, what is of supreme importance in these teachings is the moment-to-moment experience of the meditator.  The fundamental skill in approaching these teachings is developing the ability to be fully present with what arises in experience in every moment of existence. \nDuring the first part of the retreat\, we will focus on some of the essential skills that are necessary to bring these teachings into your actual experience.  The main part of the retreat will be devoted to a close reading of a short text by the 19th century Dzog Chen master Ju Mipham Jampal Dorje.  In this short text\, he covers all of the essential points bringing for these teachings into your life in every moment. \nThe cost of the retreat is $1\,450 which includes single room accommodations\, all meals\, teachings and interviews.  If you wish to participate\, please send a $100 deposit to Dan Jorgensen\, 13118 Thistledown Court\, Auburn\, CA 95603.  The balance is due by May 31st. If you have a financial hardship\, please let us know. \nIf you have not participated in a previous retreat with us\, we ask that you fill out a short retreat application.  The reason for this is to make sure this retreat is suitable for you.  If you have any questions about the retreat or need an application\, please respond to either of us by email.  Our email addresses are on our website: www.clearmountainwisdom.org. \n  \n URL:https://www.clearmountainwisdom.org/event/the-vast-spaciousness-of-natural-clarity-a-direct-awareness-practice/ LOCATION:Mercy Center Auburn\, 535 Sacramento St\, Auburn\, CA\, 95603\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.clearmountainwisdom.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Vajradhara.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=UTC:20201014T190000 DTEND;TZID=UTC:20201018T130000 DTSTAMP:20200328T045332 CREATED:20190714T010245Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190714T010427Z UID:306-1602702000-1603026000@www.clearmountainwisdom.org SUMMARY:Four-Day Retreat DESCRIPTION:The topic and cost for this retreat will be announced in mid summer 2020. \n URL:https://www.clearmountainwisdom.org/event/four-day-retreat-4/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
