International Conference on Presence and Awareness
31. March – 4. April 2018
In a world overburdened with movement, tension, and distraction, it is becoming increasingly essential that we find ways to relax, coordinate mind and energy. Recognizing the importance of harmonizing thought and feeling within the context of our complicated and multi faceted lives, Dzamling Gar, on belhalf the International Dzogchen Community and Shang Shung Foundation, is happy to organize this event.
Instructors from the International Dzogchen Community will present brief talks on this subject and then give advice on how methods of practical training can be applied. Perspectives on this training will also be introduced by yoga and dance instructors.
“Mindfulness”, rendered by Dzogchen Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu as “presence”, is a means of bringing ones attention into the experience of the present moment.
Many scientific studies have proven its benefits in improving general well-being, and mental and emotional health while eliminating stress and other causes of disease.
