Join the Bay Area Evolving Ground local group for an enriching session of meditation and movement at The Alembic. This regular gathering offers a unique opportunity to delve into contemporary Vajrayana practices and connect with a community dedicated to personal and collective transformation.

Event Details:

  • Meet and Greet: Start with a warm welcome and introductions.
  • Opening Awareness Meditation: A brief introduction to opening awareness meditation, followed by a 20-minute seated session. This practice, foundational to Evolving Ground, is a modern adaptation of the Dzogchen practice of shi-ne (shamatha in Sanskrit), leading to vividness and spacious clarity.
  • Slow Standing Meditations: Engage in slow, mindful movements from the Sky Realm Series (Nam’khor in Tibetan). These Dzogchen long-de practices, unique to Evolving Ground, resemble Qi Gong but focus on discovering the nonduality of clarity and bliss through embodied awareness, known as “tsal.”
  • Breaks and Discussions: Short breaks between sessions to relax and prepare for the next activity, concluding with a group discussion and Q&A.

What to Expect:

  • No Prior Experience Needed: This meetup is designed for both beginners and experienced practitioners. Everyone is welcome.
  • Interactive and Supportive Environment: Plenty of space for questions, reflections, and group exploration of the practices.
  • Free to Attend: Open to all, with no cost for participation.
