Programs and Practice
A Weekend Maitri Program with Carole Fleming October 9 – October 11
Vajrayana Buddhism teaches that there are five basic energies, inherent in all of us, known as the Five Buddha Families. This energetic expression can be seen in our attitudes, emotions, actions and interactions. During the weekend, we will use the Maitri Space Awareness practice designed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche as well as talks and discussions to explore our everyday experience of these energies in both their wisdom and confused aspects. The program can accommodate a small number of participants. So, please register early.

The are generosity, discipline, patience, joyful exertion, meditation, and wisdom. Please join use to learn more about how we can apply the teachings in our lives to benefit others as well as ourselves.

Already Free: Buddhism Meets Psychotherapy, Book Discussion with Author Bruce Tift and Andrew Holocek
Why are more and more psychotherapists embracing meditation practice, while so many Buddhists are exploring psychology? “Both psychology and Buddhism seek to provide freedom from suffering,” explains Bruce Tift, “yet each offers a completely different approach for reaching this goal.” In Already Free, Tift opens a fresh and provocative dialogue between these two profound perspectives on the human condition.
Date/Time: Saturday, October 24, 2015, 7pm-9pm
