These disconnected, plugged-in—yet tuned-out times can cause a constant pull on your well-being. Becoming one with everything by seeing through separateness and solidarity is at the heart of inter-meditation. Inter-meditation means meditating with. It is the unity-yoga of convergence, connection, co-meditation, and spontaneous oneness. It is a simple joyful path to see through the illusion of separation and experience meaningful connectedness and the renowned one-taste of tantric Mahamudra and Dzogchen, the natural Great Perfection.
Join Lama Surya Das, bestselling author and recipient of the 2003 Infinity Foundation Spirit Award, in his newest work from his most recent release Make Me One with Everything: Buddhist Meditations to Awaken from the Illusion of Separation. Lama Surya Das is one of the most learned and respected Buddhist teachers in the West and he invites you to experience a remarkable integration of traditional and original inter-meditation practices that allow you to see through the illusion of separation. If you have ever felt ‘at one’ with something—your beloved or your child, a forest trail, or a favorite song—then you have experienced inter-meditation.
Through discussion, experientials, and question and answers become informed by
- Experiencing practical inter-meditations.
- Practicing tantric exercises to open portals to oneness in nature, with others, and with your higher deepest power.
- Moving beyond notions such as distraction and concentration or the conceptual separation between the sacred and the mundane
Meditation is usually thought of as a solitary activity that occurs solely in your own mind. By turning inward you strive to dissolve obstacles through self-inquiry and find peace through concentration, contemplation, and self-emptying. But inter-meditation (or co-meditation) is the other half of meditation. It is inclusive. Instead of getting rid of things, you embrace people, feelings, and events. Everything can be meditated. It is all grist for the mill, worthy of appreciation in its own way. Integrating the view, the bigger picture, the great perspective, with daily life is the way, not being secluded or getting away from it all. Explore inclusive meditation for both new and experienced meditators. You may bring a floor cushion for meditation. Chairs are available.
