Meditation Instructor Gathering
with Dale Asrael & David Rome
June 6 / 12:00 AM - June 9 / 12:00 AM
We are happy to announce the Meditation Instructors’ Gathering at Karmê Chöling, and encourage all meditation Instructors to attend. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has requested that, throughout the Shambhala community this year, we emphasize meditation instruction as a focus of our work together. Specifically, he would like us to use this period of time to train and deepen in Shambhala Meditation by studying the text. Additionally, to prepare for the role of meditation instruction in a societal vision, he asks that we further develop skills of listening and inquiry. As he said, our role is “…not to teach the students something, but to help them discover something”.
The Meditation Instructors’ Gatherings will include study and contemplation of excerpts of the Shambhala Meditation text, exploring the ways the qualities of gentleness, trust, and caring inform our entire approach to meditation (our own practice, as well as teaching meditation to others). Thus, meditation can be understood as an expression of appreciation for oneself, and the qualities of embodiment, relaxation, kindness and confidence can be communicated.
Additionally there is a materials fee of $10
The Meditation Instructor Gathering will begin at 7:15pm June 6 and end with a reception 6:30pm.
Please plan to attend the entire program.
