Walk Like a Buddha (Westside)


with Lodro Rinzler
October 23 / 7:30 PM - October 23 / 9:30 PM

Walk like a Buddha - even when your boss sucks, your ex is torturing you, and you're hung-over again.

 

How can I be the person I want to be when I’m stuck in a job I hate? Is it possible to sleep with more than one person at once and still be spiritual? Can I practice Buddhism and still wear really cool hats? Join 30-year-old Shambhala Buddhist practitioner Lodro Rinzler for a frank discussion on Buddhism and how meditation can inform all the nitty-gritty aspects of our daily life. His second book, Walk Like a Buddha, is based on his popular Huffington Post column and offers advice on a range of uniquely modern dilemmas we face when going out with friends on a Friday night, when your love life isn’t what you’d hope it’d be, your jerk of a boss is giving you a hard time, and you really want to create lasting societal change in the world.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.
