Season 4 Episode 4 - Airs on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020 at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern Time.
This week, we talk about the Dharma, and the pre-conditions for waking in the body. I speak with Nomi Adamson, a dear friend and a long time student of the teaching of the buddha. The practice of Kum Nye has its roots in Tibetan Buddhist thought, and yet, we need not study Buddhism to benefit from this rich and deep practice. How do we approach suffering, fear, and intense feelings of pain or loss? What might precede our decision and our path to embody, or make manifest our true nature? In this meandering conversation, we explore the still waters that give us the courage and insight to go inward.
Followed by a twenty minute guided meditation.
Guest Nomi Adamson:
"The Buddha’s teachings of awakening, and practices to develop them have been an integral part of my life since I was 6 years old when my family connected with an amazing teacher, and awakened being, Namgyal Rinpoche. I have benefited greatly from his vast view and amazing skilfulness, developed from his roots in Canadian culture, his training in Burma and Thailand in the 1950s, his recognition by the Tibetans in the 1960s and then teaching and exploring around the world for 40+ years."
About Season 4 - "Awake in the Body"
This season, through conversations with body centered practitioners, yoga teachers, and teachers of mindfulness and non-dual wisdom, let’s weave our way through the skillful means to touch to and awaken the wisdom and nourishment available through the body. Ever mindful of a broad cultural denial of the body, we share pieces of our own journeys, and offer skills to help awaken us to our own wisdom.
In this strange time that surrounds us, we are looking everywhere for answers, for the truth, the facts, and ways to safely navigate. More and more of us turn within, and begin to trust the wisdom within, moving beyond the divided world of facts, to the wholeness of the heart.
