Work, Wealth and Wisdom: An Under 30 Retreat Day


with Michael Greenleaf
November 17 / 9:00 AM - November 17 / 6:00 PM

This gathering will be a one-day retreat and investigation of our relationship to our work life and career. Since we spend so much of our time at work, this gathering will explore together how to bring vision and inspiration into our work lives more fully. The day will include meditation practice, contemplative exercises, remarks from Acharya Greenleaf and discussion. This program is open to anyone who identifies as a young adult, "Under 30" can be interpreted very loosely!


Acharya Michael Greenleaf began his dharma practice as a teenager after meeting a senior student from Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s community in 1974. For the past several years, he has studied and taught in Shambhala in the role of acharya, or senior teacher, as a personal representative of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
Acharya Greenleaf is a CPA and holds a MBA from New York University. He credits his dharma practice with helping him see the dream-like nature of financial information. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has designated Acharya Greenleaf as the Wealth and Generosity Acharya, responsible for inspiring generosity through promoting an understanding of the Shambhala path of generosity and the fearless path of Shambhala philanthropy. Acharya Greenleaf lives with his wife, Jeanine Greenleaf, in West Barnet, Vermont.
