With John Jackson
For thousands of years, the wise that have come before us have respected and connected with the forces of nature. If you yearn to reconnect, to live in harmony with the world we call our home, join us for this weekend of ancient sacred ritual and meditation. We will work through the Tibetan smoke offering practices of sang chod to make peace with the forces of nature, and with ourselves. These simple practices, variations of which are performed daily throughout Asia by millions of people from all walks of life, lead to feelings of connection and belonging in the sacred mother earth. We will also be sharing a full moon ritual that supports the regular and sustaining presence of the rains, to support the harmony of all life in our world.

Sherab Chamma, the Wisdom Loving Mother, is the embodiment of loving compassion. As an enlightened deity, she manifests in many different forms according to the needs of practitioners.
The eight manifestations that are the focus of this series of meditations are all peaceful forms that help us overcome and transform different types of struggles and fears, such as challenges with enemies, fears of illness, struggles with the unknown, and the fear of death.
Through the power of Sherab Chamma’s wisdom and love, our fears are transformed into self arising wisdom and we are able to creatively embrace the many challenges of our lives.
