UPDATED | 7th Lojong Retreat May 10-13 with Zoltan Cser

The 7th Lojong involves training in the state beyond thought by means of pleasure and emptiness, training in the state beyond thought by means of clarity and emptiness, and training in the ultimate nature of phenomena completely beyond thought. Zoli would like to give an experimental retreat, where we are focusing to the practice. The 7th Lojong is the supreme method in order to start on the path of contemplation, with this practices we can gain experience about a pure instant presence, beyond mind. . Tummo means inner heat, and also related with a method of 7th Lojong. With Tummo we can find meditative stability through joy and emptiness, so this is a very important practice. Beside sitting we will do different practices, breathing, doing Yantra Yoga, and dance of the 12 A .
