Mudra Space Awareness

with Rupa Acharya Suzann Duquette

November 16 - 20, 2018

Mudra Space Awareness is a mind/body transformation method developed by The Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Inspired by his education in Tibetan Monastic dance, the Mudra exercises combine intense physical training with focused sensory awareness to unlock our inherent freedom and create a radical shift in our understanding of the mind/body relationship to space.

In the early 1970s, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced Mudra practice before he formally conferred Vajrayana (Tantric Buddhist) teachings to his American students. This practice accessed the qualities of Dzogchen and Mahamudra that dissolve distinctions between the sacred and profane aspects of experience. Mudra was presented initially as theater training to some of the foremost theater innovators of that decade. Mudra has since been applied, both as an adjunct to formal sitting meditation, and increasingly as a means for developing meditation in action.

"The Vidyadhara's teachings on Mudra Space Awareness are one of Shambhala's hidden treasures. The cycle of exercises embody his creative genius in making the vajrayana teachings accessible and penetrating. He begins at the beginning-how to be in space-then takes us step by step through how to stand, walk, relate with things, and interact with people. So simple, yet so revealing! "
-Ashe Acharya John Rockwell
