Sunshine of Your Love

“As the ego dissolves and our pure potential manifests, it is like the five rays of light that stream out of a crystal when struck by the sun.”

~ Lama Tsultrim Allione
While the sun shines here on the land in Colorado, and nature is in abundance, we bow to the original custodians of the land, the spirits that inhabit it, and the elements that sustain life for us all.
Likewise, our internal landscape is full of ancient intelligence, beauty, and mystery. When we shine the sun of awareness on our soul, we are embodying an ongoing awakening that helps heal the world. How do we cultivate our own inner sunshine?
Read more below, as we share how as beginners and seasoned practitioners, our potential for transformation is abundant!
