Bhutan through the eyes of a Shambhalian: What can we learn from Bhutan about enlightened society?

with Irini Rockwell
November 7 / 7:00 PM - November 7 / 9:00 PM

Irini Rockwell shares images from a trip to Bhutan and makes connections with how each of us has our own way of perceiving the world and relating with others. Natural Brilliance sheds light on a Buddhist system that enhances self-awareness, improves relationships, and boosts effectiveness at work.

Spend an evening with Irini Rockwell and learn more about the Five Wisdoms, or basic energy patterns, which are the building blocks of self-expression, creativity, and compassion. The Five Wisdoms are based on contemplative Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Chögyam Trungpa played an integral role in making these teaching accessible in the West.

All of us can experience and develop these energies, which are simple presence, clarity, richness, passion, and action. Irini will draw upon her book, which is rich with exercises and realworld examples of how you and the people close to you can explore your talents and deepen your relationships.

Irini Rockwell, MA, is director and principal trainer at the Five Wisdoms Institute. Author of Natural Brilliance and The Five Wisdom Energies: A Buddhist Way of Understanding Personalities, Emotions, and Relationships, she holds a Master’s in Contemplative Psychotherapy and a certificate in Authentic Leadership from Naropa University where she was director of dance and dance therapy. She is a senior teacher in the Shambhala community.
