Description:Tejananda and Prajnapriya from the Vajraloka Buddhist Meditation Centre will be leading a workshop exploring the real nature of the body and embodiment.
Usually we think 'we' are walking around in a body of flesh and that the world is 'out there'. But is this how things actually are?

By looking at our actual experience in a directed, inquisitive and playful way, we can begin to discover what's really going on. Right here we have access to the 'pure relative truth' of the body which reflects the Three Bodies of the Buddha - the Trikaya.

These three dimensions of experience are the 'apparent' body, what we take to be our 'ordinary' body, the more subtle 'energy' body and the body of 'space' and 'awareness'. These are ways of talking about our actual experience right now, once we notice what is really going on. They are also an excellent basis for going more deeply into both shamatha and vipashyana meditation practices, and we will explore some of the ways this might unfold.
