Calm Abiding Meditation provides training to quiet our inner agitation, allowing us to experience a stable state of tranquility. On a foundation of extensive meditation, the Extraordinary Calm Abiding of His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche will be taught.

This special practice transforms and dissolves the elements of our fabricated world into emptiness. It trains us to let go of our habitual hold on ordinary reality and is a powerful way to prepare for the eventual dissolution of our body.
