We are so happy to invite you to 'The Mahamudra of the Amulet Box' empowerment and teachings with Lama Norlha Rinpoche on November 1 and 2, 2014. This Sublime Meditation Practice is one of the five dharmas of the Shangpa Kagyu Lineage. This is a most amazing empowerment which is completely direct and profoundly experiential. To say the least this empowerment and practice is seldom given. Truly this is a gift of Lama Norlha to everyone. We rarely say “do not miss this event," but... do not miss this event!
Doors open at 8:30 am
Program begins at 9am
9am- 9:45am - meditation practice
10am to 12pm - Lama Norlha will give the empowerment and teaching
12- 2pm - lunch break

3pm- 5pm Lama - Norlha will present Mahamudra teachings
The same schedule will be followed on Sunday.
Registration is $150 for the whole weekend. Of course everyone is invited whether they can afford the donation or not. All funds go to Lama Norlha and the expense of building the Maitreya Center. It is best to plan to stay for the entire program. The essence of the program is the transmission of the empowerment.

We both hope and wish that the wonderful qualities of the innate field of awareness can be experienced directly and immediately in your home…And why not? The same center is within you and within us. In the Argentinean author Jorge Luis Borges’ short story, “The Aleph”, a man discovers that the center of the universe is located in his own basement. This center point gives its beholder access to the oneness of the field. The Aleph point is the center, and all the centers are completely interconnected at the subtle level of the field of consciousness. Thus meetings can be direct, unmediated and consequently, inside to inside…self to self.

More about the archives
The archives are video streamed seminars and audio seminars that contain many hours of the meditation seminars as well as professional psychotherapy and healing seminars. The awareness field meditation seminars reflect awareness field meditation based on Dzogchen teachings and also at times elaborating the supporting views of Kashmir Shavism, early Gnostic Christianity, Western Phenomenology and Yan Xin Qi Gong. The healing and psychotherapy seminars focus on the awareness field as elaborated through Dzogchen teachings and western phenomenology. The special events seminar reflects Dzogchen Mahamudra retreats and interviews with healers and psychotherapist who work within the field of awareness. The special events audio section contains numerous psychotherapy training seminars on existential psychotherapy, gestalt psychotherapy, contemplative psychotherapy, psychoanalytic intersubjective experience, and Winicott’s transitional space and relatedness understanding. There are seminars on the phenomenology of awareness that integrate Dzogchen awareness teachings and western phenomenology into the context of relational psychotherapy.
We are very happy that many people who participate in the live online video streaming as well as those who access the archived seminars report experiencing the field of awareness and its wonderful qualities. All these archived seminars can be accessed for free.
