Special Chöd Practice and a Tsog (feast) for Losar.
Time & Location
About The Event
Losar is Tibetan New Year, and it is very auspicious to practice on the days leading up to the first New Moon of the Tibetan Calendar. As with many New Year celebrations there is a focus on removing negativity, clearing the energy for the upcoming year, and opening up to the benefits that the new year may hold.
A Tsog is a ceremonial gathering, a feast, where we have an opportunity to gather, eat, and drink with the awareness of ‘One Taste.” “One Taste’ is the experience of eating without judging what we are eating. This tantric practice helps us get out of our judgmental patterns of deciding what we like, what we dislike, and to what we are indifferent. In Tsog, we experience being present, and understanding the interconnectedness of senses and sense objects.
Karla Jackson-Brewer, an Authorized Tara Mandala teacher will be leading the Chöd transmitted by Chogyal Namkai Norbu Rinpoche and we are asking all Chödmas & Chödpas to bring their practice, drums, bells and other Chöd instruments. Those who have not received the Chöd transmission are welcome to come and receive the benefit of this ancient practice developed by an 11th century Tibetan woman, Machig Lapdron.
We are also asking everyone to bring offerings for the feast. Traditionally that consists of anything you can easily eat with your fingers (cut veggies, cheese, sweets, rice balls, nuts candy, cookies, crackers, etc). It is auspicious to offer something for the feast as well as to partake.
All are welcome!
Date & time: Sunday 2/23/20 12:30pm- 4:30pm EST. 12:30 Arrival and set up, 1pm Practice starts.
Location: CRS, 123 Fourth Avenue, 2nd fl., NYC 10003
