||Distrust: a Doorway to Sacred World (weekend program)
with Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel
Sat May 26th: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PMSun May 27th: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Price: $100 tuition
In Room(s): Main Shrine Room
“What can we trust about our mind?” Asking this provocative question leads to the core of the Buddhist path. We will launch into this topic beginning with the poem “Looking into the World” by the Vidhyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, in which he openly explores the importance of distrust on the path. We will take this approach further and look at how distrust shapes the outlook of seeing the world as sacred. Finally, we will see how distrust supports us in our relationship with the teacher.
Ms. Namgyel will examine the topic in what will be a lively weekend of talks, discussion and practice.
Elizabeth is known for her willingness to question the entire path in order to reach a place of genuine practice and awakening. She asks audience to engage in the practice of open questioning with her while she takes a fresh look at all the assumptions and beliefs we have about spirituality. Audiences repeatedly comment on how this approach has reinvigorated their meditation practice and the way they relate to their lives as a whole.
Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel has studied and practiced the Buddhadharma for twenty-seven years under the guidance of her teacher and husband Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. She is the retreat master of Samten Ling in Crestone, Colorado and has spent over six years in retreat. She holds a degree in anthropology and an M.A. in Buddhist Studies. She teaches throughout the U.S. and Europe. She is the author of, The Power of an Open Question: The Buddha’s Path to Freedom.
“Mattis-Namgyel understands her Western readers. She reaches out gently to them, with compassion born of over twenty-five years of Buddhist practice. She knows the questions that readers need answered. She anticipates the challenges that will arise for them as they attempt to drastically change their mindsets. Reading this book is a beautiful experience on the journey in search of enlightenment.”
