Shambhala Sunday Gathering—Aggression, Protection, and Sense of Humor

Date: Sunday, April 28, 2024 (15:00 -16:00)

Sunday Gatherings are LIVE every week at 3:00 p.m. ET

In these times of chaos and suffering throughout the world, we need to remember the words of Trungpa Rinpoche, “The world needs you now." We can contemplate what this means for us in relationship to aggression, protection, and humor. We will look at these together.
