      EVENT DETAILS
      Somatic Meditation Southwest Florida

      This group is for anyone interested in the study and practice of somatic meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist lineage of Dharma Ocean as taught by Reggie Ray and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Dharma Ocean is a community of meditators and groups around the world, following the path of embodied spirituality. Dharma Ocean is a non-monastic, non-organized religion - a community of people who prioritize the practice of somatic meditation in their lives. Dharma Ocean is a large and diffuse community without any definite boundaries, but one linked by a common love of life and the somatic practices that open us to it. As a “practicing lineage,” coming together in practice with others is one of the ways that we can support our own individual practice and nourish our lives.Here are some helpful resources:1.
