This Friday: Dakini Practice Class 1

We're beginning a very exciting and intense section of our study. We will be learning the Dakini Practice as taught by Ken McLeod, as a way of working with the way our reactions manifest. We will be learning the language of the five elements and five dakinis, also known as the five Buddha families. We'll be studying back and forth between the book and Ken's podcast on this subject, integrating the material slowly and surely. This Friday night we will listen to Ken's opening talk on the Five Dakini practice, as given during a week-long retreat.
