The event opens with raising Bodhicitta and setting our motivation to listen in order to benefit all beings, followed by prayer requests for those in need. Lopon Charlotte and Pieter then respond to and answer questions from participants. While answering questions, Pieter and Lopon Charlotte teach on quotes from the 11th century master, Machig Labdron which include self-compassion, the Great Mother, the experience of suffering, and on discipline in meditation.
Pieter then guides us in a beautiful calm-abiding meditation, followed by an experience of resting in open-awareness. They both then close the practice with well-wishes and dedication of any merit gained during these precious teachings and practice together.
