Dharma Talk - December Pema Chodron DVD Night (Westside)

December 11th

Date details +
    Room: WESTSIDE SHAMBHALA @ 3877 Grand View Blvd, Mar Vista, 90066

    Pema Chödrön is widely known for her charming and down-to-earth interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences. As a beloved Buddhist teacher, author, nun and mother, Pema Chödrön has inspired millions of people from around the world who have been touched by her example and message of practicing peace in these turbulent times. We’re fortunate to be able to screen rarely seen DVDs since one of our members is a close friend of Pema’s.

    Pema has written several books including “The Wisdom of No Escape”, “Start Where You Are”, “When Things Fall Apart”, “The Places that Scare You”, “No Time to Lose” and “Practicing Peace in Times of War”.

    All are encouraged to attend, regardless of meditation experience or if new to meditation. These evenings feature a short period of meditation with instruction, often from Pema within the context of her talk; discussion and light refreshments.
