Awakened Wednesday

with Scott Kamilar
August 6 / 7:00 PM - August 6 / 9:00 PM

Currently discussing Cutting Through Spiritual Materialsm by Chögyam Trungpa Rimpoche

Free open house where new students can receive meditation instruction. Sitting meditation begins at 7 o'clock. Snacks, book study and discussion begin at 8 o'clock.

We use an "active learning" format where we read a portion of the book then stop and discuss it before moving on. The goal is to learn not only from the book but also from each other and learn from where we are.

For more details or if you have questions, please contact Scott Kamilar at

Chögyam Trungpa Rimpoche (1939-1987)—meditation master, scholar, and artist—was the founder of Shambhala. After escaping the Chinese invasion of Tibet, he came to the west to teach Shambhala Buddhism. This book is a collection of some of his most important and influential teachings.
