Mahayana Essentials with Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, December 2-3, 2017

Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel

The Five Slogans of Machik Labdron:
Confess your hidden faults.
Approach what you find repulsive.
Help those you think you cannot help.
Anything you are attached to, let it go.
Go to the places that scare you.

The fearless and innovative practitioner Machik Labdron (11th century) was one of Tibet’s most renowned female saints and teachers. Machik’s unique approach provides us with a path to transform our inner demons by invoking, embracing, and nurturing them. In this three-talk weekend, Elizabeth will lead us through guided meditations and discussions on these pithy slogans, which Machik received from her teacher, Padampa Sangye.
