    Chögyam Trungpa, the founder of the Shambhala centers, wrote a practice called the Sadhana of Mahamudra, which is chanted aloud in a group session on the full moon of each month. The Sadhana of Mahamudra is both a practice and a teaching on overcoming obstacles and degraded spiritual practices in our time.  It explains how to transmute the phenomenal world directly into enlightenment through meditation in action.

    This practice is full of symbolism that may seem very strange to new practitioners. Don't expect to understand it fully the first time you do it. As with all dharma teachings, understanding develops through patience and contemplation. The chant leader is available to answer any questions and will give a brief explanation of how to do the practice before it is begun.  The practice is done on or around full and new moons days, when our moods and thought patterns tend to be most unruly. Instead of running away from the chaos of a busy mind, we invite you to join us for this practice!
