Being Brave - Is Enlightened Society Possible?

with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche & Pema Chödron
May 2 / 7:00 PM - May 4 / 6:00 PM

Drawing on the depths of Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, Being Brave will explore how meditation practice develops a greater sense of interconnectedness, and rouses strength to cultivate enlightened society. How can we apply inner peace and bravery to develop outer compassionate action? Global spiritual wisdom speaks to an inner and outer transformation.  When we open our hearts to meet fear with bravery, we can begin to connect with the fundamental practice of compassion and the recognition of our shared humanity.

A weekend of teaching, meditation, and discussion. Being Brave will be host to Pema Chödrön’s only public teaching on the West Coast in 2014. Joined also by guest speaker, Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andrus, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California.
