"When understood, the Buddha’s universe..is anything but alien and inhibiting. It is a world full of hope, where everything we need to do can be done and everything that matters is within human reach. It is a world where kindness, unselfishness, non-violence, and compassion achieve what self-interest and arrogance cannot. It is a world where any human can be happy in goodness and the fullness of giving." ❦ Eknath Easwara

Shambhala Announces Weekend Online Retreat with Pema Chödrön!

Although I have no affiliation with Shambhala Publications, I am a long-time admirer and student of Pema Chödrön's books and teachings.  So, when I got an e-mail today announcing this online retreat with Pema, I thought I'd help spread the word!

The online retreat is October 28-30. If you are interested in participating, you should go to the Shambhala web site to get complete information by clicking on this link:

Online Retreat with Pema Chödrön 

Here are a few details from Shambhala's webpage to pique your interest!
  • How do we work skillfully with rough times?
  • How do we transform our lives during times of upheaval and unpredictability?
  • How do we broaden our tolerance for uneasiness?
These and related questions will be explored in detail by Pema Chödrön during this retreat—a rare opportunity to study and practice with the beloved teacher in real time.

When we’re going through a challenging period, Pema teaches, we all need to find ways to tap into our inherent strength and courage. When we access that brave heart within, answers to those hard questions arise on their own quite naturally.

Pema Chödrön’s message during this weekend retreat is as simple as it is bold: We can do it! And we can all do it beautifully.

The online retreat includes:
  •     Full access to the three-day event in real time via live webcast.
  •     Post-event access to the on-demand video with streaming video playback until December 31, 2011
