While the notion of self-hood is natural or innate to all beings, in all forms of Buddhism, enlightenment is attained through eliminating self-ignorance and cultivating the experience of no-self. Severance combines Mahayana’s mind training in shunyata, compassion, and generosity with Vajrayana’s methods for isolating consciousness (phowa), feast offerings (ganachakra), and resting in the self-knowledge called luminosity or clear light.

The Dakini Heart Essence severance is based on Thröma Nagmo, Fierce Black Mother, a direct revelation from the Indian mahasiddha, Saraha, to Dudjom Lingpa in the 19th century. This is a concise practice of a few pages and can be practiced in ten minutes. This class will begin with teachings on the principles of severance and then offer detailed instructions on practicing this particular severance sadhana.
