Mindfulness, leadership and society


with Chris Tamdjidi 10 – 11 maj

With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world, even in small ways. This weekend emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world’s challenges. In particular we look out how we can cultivate unwavering confidence and compassionate action through the simple practice of mindfulness. We also will look at particular aspects of the Shambhala teachings that can help us in cultivating such forms of leadership.

Prerequisites: A beating heart!
