The Theater Legacy of Chogyam Trungpa with Mitra Lee Worley

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s pioneering work of bringing Tibetan Buddhism to North America is well known; however, his work as a playwright and teacher of performance remains relatively unknown. Mitra Lee Worley, who began her career as an actress and director in the Open Theater, was fortunate to have studied, directed and performed under Rinpoche’s guidance. More than four decades later, techniques that once seemed obscure now provide a doorway to meditative experience and serve as a powerful ally in the quest for living with confidence in these challenging times.

The weekend will consist of a historical perspective on the Mudra Theater Conference held in 1973, practice of some of the exercises that Trungpa Rinpoche presented to the Mudra Theater Group in the years following that conference, extracts/readings from his plays and an investigation of the view that Mudra work includes and how it relates to Mahamudra. Participants will be invited to both experiential exploration and discussion of their insights.
