At one time or another each of us suffer strong emotions that throw us off balance, cause us to act in ways that we later regret, and make us lose touch with our true nature. Centuries ago the masters of the Bön lineage developed the meditations of the Six Lokas specifically to remedy this situation, to help us live our lives in a balanced and relaxed way.

The meditations focus on the root causes of our suffering: anger, desire, greed, ignorance, jealousy, pride and laziness. Through each meditation we examine our habitual patterns so that we may recognize them, then invoke the enlightened energy of the Buddhas to purify and transform us so that we and all other beings might not continue to suffer in this way. The practices have a deep healing and transformative power, and are traditionally practiced at length as a preliminary to dzogchen contemplation.

John Jackson's short  biography


John began his training in meditation when he was 19, practicing a variety of methods from pranayama to Tibetan dzogchen. During his studies and explorations he has traveled on pilgrimages around the world  and spent lengthy periods of time in retreat in Triten Norbutse and Menri monasteries in Nepal and India.  Over the past 20 years John has  developed close relationships with and received private instruction from His Holiness Lungtog Tenpai Nyima and Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak, the two most senior teachers of the Bön lineage, and Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, the most senior Bön master in the West. He has been teaching meditation courses at Ligmincha Institute and related centers across the United States  and Europe since 2001, including Tibetan Dream Yoga, the Nine Ways of Bön, Integrating Meditation with Daily Life, Healing the Earth – Healing Yourself, Tsa Lung, Tibetan Sound Healing, Awakening the Luminous Mind, and Red Garuda. He is co-leader for the 3 Doors Academy of Europe, an intensive three year program for gaining deep experience in the Tibetan practices of body, speech and mind.

John helped establish Ligmincha Institute  beginning in 1992, organizing most retreats, editing practice materials, and serving on its board of directors until 1997. At the request of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche in 2001, he helped establish the Chamma Ling Retreat Center of Colorado, a place of solitary retreat in the remote Sangre de Christo mountains of Colorado, and currently serves as a director of that center. John was also active in the planning and initial setup of Lishu Institute, near Dheradun, India.

John lives near Charlottesville, Virginia, where he enjoys gardening, being a father, and spending time in solitude in the mountains.
