Emptiness Bootcamp
An 8-day meditation challenge

Recordings available for several days after.

Each and every living being has the sincere wish to avoid all suffering and problems permanently, and all the problems we experience day to day come from our self-grasping. From this basic misconception arises all our other delusions, such as anger and attachment, causing us to experience endless problems.

In this 8-day meditation challenge, we will work on dispelling our self-grasping by delving in to the meditations on emptiness, using the chapter "Training in Ultimate Bodhichitta" from Modern Buddhism 2nd Ed. This is one of the clearest and most comprehensive explanations of emptiness available. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso has encouraged his students to read this chapter 100 times or more. So let's get going!
