Sunday Gathering - Crisis and Community

Date: Sunday, August 2, 2020
Teacher : Shastri Jil Amadio
Patron Price: $20

In this difficult period of disruption we have all experienced and witnessed crisis first hand.  It seems there is little we can do to avoid the pain and challenge crisis presents. Yet, it also seems that crisis has a way of bringing us into very intimate contact with both reality and compassion, creating a potent time for liberation and connection.

Jil is also the author and producer of several award-winning documentaries that shine a light on marginalized communities. Trained in traditional wisdom methods, Jil was appointed Shastri (senior teacher) in 2016 by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and is inspired to bring the power of meditation to modern societal challenges. Jil loves to spend time with her teenage daughter, who regularly teaches her about humility.
