This week the group will take a look at what is considered the highest form of meditation in Tibetan Buddhism: Mahamudra/Dzogchen. This consists of resting in the present moment, and allowing thoughts to exist as they are as a reflection of nonconceptual experience. This draws from the teachings of Khenpo Gangshar on the topic, who was a Tibetan Lama famous for being last seen walking towards the Chinese during the invasion of Tibet.
UT Meditate strives to provide meditation instruction to young people and all others as well as create a community interested in exploring their own minds. This is a secular group; all religious backgrounds or lack thereof are welcome!
Being a UT student is NOT required. This is not an official UT group, just one that is run by a UT student.
The meetings include a guided meditation starting at 5:40, followed by a silent meditation. We will then break before Q&A on the meditation technique and will follow that with a discussion topic of the week.
The room is RLM 9.222. That is in Robert Lee Moore Hall on the ninth floor. Do not take the escalators. Take the elevators. There is a sign that points to the room as you exit the elevator.
PARKING- Unless you have a UT parking pass, you will have to pay at a meter for parking
