Meditation Practices

Looking to get started?

We offer ways for students at every level to learn and practice meditation in the Namchak lineage. Beginning students can access guided audio meditations for foundational practices common to all forms of Buddhism: Shamata or “Calm Abiding,” Tonglen or “Sending and Receiving,” and “Clearing the Stale Energies,” a pranayama or "breath" practice that helps clear the mind in preparation for meditation.
