Understanding Trauma in Tibetan Buddhism: Join Dr. Sara Lewis in a discussion of her book, Spacious Minds: Trauma and Resilience in Tibetan Buddhism, which explores how Tibetan refugees have coped with political violence, and how Buddhist notions of mind, emotions, and memory collide with Western concepts of trauma.
Please join us every Sunday for an online gathering of the Shambhala community worldwide. This online space is a place where we can practice meditation together, hear dharma teachings from a featured guest teacher, learn more about the activities of incredible people in our sangha, engage in discussion – and connect with one another, our community, and our hearts.
