Tasting the essence of Tantra seminar Module 3

2 oktober 20154 oktober 2015

Rob Preece

Rob Preece has studied Tibetan Buddhism for many decades under the guidance of great teachers and holds a degree in psychology. During this time he has written four ground-breaking books on the meaningful chemistry between Jungian psychology and Tibetan (tantric) Buddhism: The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra, The Courage to Feel, The Wisdom of Imperfection and Preparing for Tantra. Rob’s style of teaching is oriented towards opening a dialogue around the material that is being explored. This is to maintain a spirit of exploration and creativity in the way tantra is integrated into Western experience, rather than holding to rigid prescriptions of practice.

Discovering the nature of Mind

In this module we will bring together the insight of emptiness from Madyamika philosophy with meditation on the nature of mind in Mahamudra. We will look at the cultivation of the insight of emptiness and explore the stages for developing the practice of tranquil abiding; we will deepen the understanding of Buddha nature, of dharmakaya as the innate clear light nature of mind. This retreat will be supported by introducing the spiritual archetype or deity Manjushri.


Learning objectives:

  • Develop the capacity of clear present awareness resting in the nature of mind from the Mahamudra tradition
  • Deepen insight into the nature of emptiness in relation to self and phenomenon
  • Establish an understanding of the stages of tranquil abiding and the obstacles to be overcome in the process
  • Gain a taste, on a more felt level, of the underlying presence of dharmakaya as the ground of being
  • Develop a relationship to the spiritual archetype (deity) Manjushri
