Practicing Peace for Pema Chödrön's Birthday - July 14th


July 14 / 12:30 PM - July 14 / 3:00 PM

July 14, 2013 is Pema Chödrön’s 77th birthday. She's invited all of us to take part of that day as a retreat. To honor the occasion, the San Diego Shambhala Meditation Center will participate in this 2nd annual world wide Practicing Peace virtual retreat.


Pema is currently at Gampo Abbey and doing very well.  She has made a video teaching just for this occasion, offering advice, encouragement, and meditation instruction.  To have her friends and students from around the globe 'practicing peace' on her birthday will be a wonderful offering to Pema.  There’s no cost to take part.


We will practice peace during this 2½ hour retreat by meditating, contemplating selections from her book Practicing Peace in Times of War, watching her video teaching, and enjoying a peaceful tea with birthday cake! Everyone is welcome; newcomers and old-timers alike.
