Six Monday Nights January 14th - February 18th
With Special Guest David Nichtern
Shastri Ethan Nichtern will examine and explain various Buddhist meditation techniques that work directly with awareness. Practicing awareness-based meditation can overcome fear and anxiety about the basic power of our mind to handle any situation that arises, and can be used as a means to deepen confidence in our awakened nature throughout our daily life. In this class, students will learn the Buddha's Four Frames of Attention, as well as more esoteric awareness practices that originate in the later traditions of Zen and Dzogchen, and an overview of the Tibetan Buddhist theory of mind and reality, the Four Tenet Systems.
Ethan Nichtern is a Shastri, a senior teacher, in the Shambhala tradition. He is the senior teacher in residence for the New York Shambhala community as well as The Interdependence Project. He is the author of the novel Your Emoticons Won't Save You, and the nonfiction book One City: A Declaration of Interdependence.
