Tuesdays with McAllister

Even without the backdrop of a global pandemic, it’s an uneasy feeling to suddenly have our daily structure pulled from under us. Clear Sky was founded with the intent of being a refuge for you to connect with nature, yourself and your meditation practice. Although we cannot be a physical refuge for you right now, we are shifting our content and courses to continue providing you with connection and support during this time. Join us Tuesdays at 11am MDT, where we are offering weekly online meditation and support classes aimed at addressing the issues and concerns that many of us…

Ignite Your Spiritual Life Online Course

We can easily feel overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Especially in these turbulent times, when it seems nobody is immune from growing levels of fear, depression, and anxiety. If you’re like many people, you may know what will help keep you calm and centered – like a regular meditation practice. Yet, you have a hard time carrying this calm into your daily life. Even with a regular meditation time, then, you may still feel pulled off-center through the day. This is because your energy gets drained away. It’s like you’re trying to cross a desert, and you’re holding your…

Mindfulness in Daily Life

Mindfulness in Daily Life — cultivating a heart that’s ready for anything.   During this 3-day retreat at the Mt Adams Zen Buddhist Temple and Trout Lake Abbey, we will use the practices of mindfulness meditation (sitting and walking) and loving-kindness to open fully to our lives. Using the breath to stabilize the mind, we then use the mind’s natural state of openness, wakefulness, and acceptance to become intimate with our current state of suffering. Through meditation, we are developing our capacity to stay with our experiences of pain, rather than trying to fix or eliminate them. We can learn…

Tantric Deep Dive: A week of empowerments

What are Vajrayana Empowerments, Initiations and Wongkur? Namgyal Rinpoche, our lineage root guru, put it best: In the depth of the psyche lie all possibilities in a state of unrealized potential. In every being there exists the possibility of experiencing transcendental consciousness, which when the student is ready, the Teacher(s) can make accessible to him or her via empowerment, initiation, or wongkur. One should regard Wongkur as an event in which the Lama sows the seed of transcendental consciousness in the depth of the student. The seed will lie in the unconscious until the student brings it to realization in…

Mastering the Sixteen Stages of Insight (Meditation Retreat)

Mastering the Sixteen Stages of Insight Through the Practice of the Foundations of Mindfulness Life is repetitious––we do many things over and over again, often in the same habitual way. The path of insight is about vipassana, literally meaning “looking again and again.” In insight meditation, we look again and again at the arisings within the mind in order to uncover the patterns within. Our minds and bodies are our most precise tools as well as our laboratories. By liberating unconscious patterns, we liberate karma from neurotic repetition. We make way for more wholesome karma–becoming a manifestation of compassion, loving-kindness,…
