2nd Annual Practicing Peace Retreat


Acharya Pema Chödrön invites everyone to join her in a worldwide virtual Practicing Peace Retreat. This is how she requests we celebrate her 77th birthday on July 14.  Please join us in Denver during our regular Sunday morning sitting for any or all of the following activities:



  • 9:00 am - 11:30 am  Open sitting and contemplation of selected readings from Pema's teachings, led by Martha Hildreth

  • 11:30 am - 12:00 pm  View recorded video message from Pema

  • 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm   Celebrate with a community salad bar/pot luck



There will be an opportunity to donate, for those who wish, directly to the Nepal Nuns, a project that is dear to Pema's heart.


For the community lunch, the Center will provide salad greens & dressings, beverages and dessert. You may contribute $5 at the door, and/or sign up to staff, and/or bring something to add to the salad bar (4-6 servings in a ready-to-serve container with serving utensil). Please click HERE to see what others are bringing and add your item to the menu, or to sign up to staff. NOTE: The refrigerator and 2 coolers with ice will be available to store foods. We have a microwave, small convection/toaster oven, and electric supply for 4-6 crock pots.


This event is FREE, but registration is required so we can arrange for the set up of the spaces and the community salad bar. Please register by Saturday, July 13, 2013.
