Queer Dharma Family Giving Thanks

con Eve Rosenthal

November 23 - 30, 2019

All beings possess natural goodness, kindness and intelligence, noble qualities inherent in each of us, regardless of style or sexuality.  The Shambhala dharma is about gaining confidence in these inherent qualities by means of meditation and infusing this confidence into our everyday lives. While this is true for everyone, the LBGTQ community faces particular challenges within society; this can be both an inspiration and an obstacle for each of us.  In this retreat we will gently explore our identity: How do I define myself? How am I perceived? How does this influence my relationship to others and society? Through personal inquiry and supportive discussion, we explore how to maintain the integrity of our identity while fostering compassion for others with diverse views. As we allow ourselves to relax into our inherent goodness, the boundaries that separate us from others may begin to soften. Our retreat includes meditation, yoga and Tai Chi practices, enjoying the garden and community celebration. Inspired and nurtured, we return to our lives with greater clarity, confidence and an open heart.

This retreat for the LGBTQ community invites practitioners of all levels of experience, but no previous meditation is necessary.

Eve Rosenthal
Acharya Eve Rosenthal’s journey with the dharma began in 1973 after she had had her first big dose of impermanence following the death of her father before his 50th birthday. That began her search for “the meaning of life” holding the question “is there more to life than just doing stuff and then you die?” While in graduate school, a friend had mentioned the name of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and upon hearing his name, Eve knew he was somebody she wanted to meet. In fact, during a trip to India, the inspiration of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s name prompted her to…
