Sunday Morning Teachings at Orgyen Hermitage, 2019

These classes were part of a series of gatherings that took place about once every 4 or 5 weeks. The talks were open to the public and so are often of a general nature. Classes were followed by a shared lunch which was an opportunity for further discussion and community building.

In the second half of 2019, we titled the theme of exploration,

primordial in the sense of original, or fundamental thing; a beginning, an origin; a first principle, an element.
dharma in the sense of
dharma as: transmission/lineage,
dharma as practice (listening, reflecting, meditating),
dharma as realisation (suchness)
