Work, Sex, and Money: Enlightened Society in the 21st Century (Westside)
with John Rockwell
March 27 / 7:30 PM - March 27 / 9:30 PM
Work, sex, and money - we look to these three basic aspects of life to give us satisfaction, yet whatever joy we may find there never seems to last. Just as quickly, and more often than not, these areas are the source of our greatest frustrations, challenges, and conflicts. Some people on a spiritual path may even wish to transcend these altogether.
Yet, according to the Shambhala teachings, these inescapable mundane aspects of life contain inherent sacredness and can teach us not only about our own basic goodness, but about the basic goodness of society as a whole.
Join us for this special evening with Ashe Acharya Rockwell as we explore how paying attention to the ordinary details of our lives can help us relate with ourselves, others, and the world in a sane, dignified, and enlightened way.
