Being Brave: Is Enlightened Society Possible?
Weekend Meditation Retreat via Webcast
May 2 - 4, 2014
Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Pema Chödrön – two of the world’s beloved spiritual leaders- come together again to offer one of their renowned meditation retreats. Now you can experience the retreat via webcast from your centre or home.
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.
