Course Description:

An introduction to the Great Mother, the perfection of wisdom personified. With this in mind, we will explore four distilled practices that mark the movement from dualistic seeing to the wholeness of being. You’ll receive a short practice text to support your bringing this practice home and furthering what you learn at your own pace. 

This teaching is inspired by the blessings and brief words of the incomparable Ad.zom Paylo Rinpoche of Tibet. Titled by him Sem Nyi Rang Grol (Mind Nature Freeing Itself) and Nyam Nyi Rang Grol (Self-Freeing Sameness), after he bestowed these teachings on Rigzin Drolma.
