With the Equanimity of Yeshé Tsogyal: Exploring Conflicts and Disappointment on the Path

con Acharya Melissa Moore

February 29 - March 7, 2020

This week will evoke the spirit and life circumstances of Yeshe Tsogyal, who faced insurmountable challenges on the path and defied all odds by attaining Buddhahood. Practicing together and taking a deep dive into our current personal and collective challenges on the path, we will explore holding equanimity in the face of turmoil in our community. Drawing from the tenants of contemplative psychology, we will restore ourselves and renew our commitment to waking up through practice and the tranquil environment of Casa Werma.

This program is open to all levels of practitioners; no prerequisites.
