The Movement Center offers a variety of authentic sacred ceremonies producing powerful healing for the practitioner, the community & environment. They are derived from the tantric traditions of Kashmir Shaivism and Tibetan Buddhism.
All tantric practices recognize that we are an energetic mechanism. This mechanism is visualized as a deity, an example of the dynamic expression of the ultimate creative energy. We practice these rituals to awaken our energetic mechanism and to attract powerful spiritual forces into our life to support our liberation.
The ceremonies are complete within themselves as they embody the totality of the universe & beyond, inner & outer worship & devotion by calling forth the subtle & gross elements of divinity & nature. They consist of an external form of practice, which may include chanting, playing instruments, hand gestures (mudras), mantras, and offerings & an internal meditation component, the visualization of the deity.
Like eyes-open class, these practices puts us in touch with the deeper dimensions of ourselves while enhancing our awareness of our creative energy or kundalini.
These rare & precious practices have come to us through Swami Chetanananda and Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche, a lineage holder in the Longcheng Nyingthig teachings, the Shi-je or Pacification of Suffering teachings of Padampa Sangye, as well as a variety of other traditions.
