Event Details

Saturday March 19th, 2011

11am-5pm

Location: Machine Project

RSVP only, limit 20.

 

 

In an effort to awaken the human biological machine, several meditation techniques will be discussed and practiced, including formless zazen sitting, Tibetan tonglen (sending & taking), Toltec recapitulation, and Fourth Way self-remembering. Come prepared to attempt the quite difficult tasks of emptying the conscious mind of its contents, following the inbreath and outbreath with opposing century counts, turning the source of attention on itself, and walking backwards all the way around Echo Park Lake.

Suggested reading:

Meditation in Action (Chögyam Trungpa)
The Psychology of Man's Possible Evolution (P.D. Ouspensky)
Sorcerer's Crossing (Taisha Abelar)
Meditations (J. Krishnamurti)

This event is part of Skylike Notdoings, a residency by artist Daniel Brummel.
