Pema Chödrön is widely beloved for her insightful, down-to-earth teachings of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience, via livestream, one of today's most prominent Buddhist teachers and hear her new insights, conveyed with her characteristic warmth, clarity, and humor.
This year, Pema Chödrön shares the practices that have most impacted her life. Through the practices of "compassionate abiding" and "exchange," known in the Tibetan language as tonglen—or "taking and giving"—we can use the most difficult or painful parts of our lives as stepping stones to open up and connect with the world.
These simple, time-honored practices rooted in Tibetan Buddhism have the power to dissolve the boundaries that separate us from others and to help us engage the world in an open and deeply connected way. This weekend will be transformative for anyone, those who are new to the journey and seasoned practitioners alike.
The livestreamed weekend includes talks, guided meditations, and question-and-answer sessions with Pema Chödrön. Tim Olmsted guides us in meditation practices that show us how to apply the weekend's teachings to our everyday lives. Silence is observed from the end of Friday night's retreat session until Saturday dinner.
For registered participants, this livestream workshop will be available on demand for 60 days after it is posted.
Note: The retreat begins Friday at 7:00 p.m. The Saturday evening question-and-answer session with Tim Olmsted is not part of the livestream retreat. With the on-demand program, you can watch all at once or at your own pace.
