In this presentation, visualisation and Yidam practice as taught by Lama Yeshe to Rob Preece, who in his turn introduced it to the lecturer Jens NĂ€sström, will be presented. With inspiration from Western psychology, an emphasis on the importance of the body in Tantric meditation, and by drawing upon observations for which conditions are unique for Westerners, an authentic form that is uniquely suited for us in the Western has been developed. 

This talk is suitable to beginners and more experienced practitioners alike, and is recommended for those who want to participate in our course Tantric visualization meditation: 4 week course or drop-in

What will I take away into my daily life?

This talk provides you with an introductory understanding of Yidam meditation, if you are newcomer, and a new approach and understanding, if you have previous experience.
